For victimless crimes it is much easier to have things expunged from your record; however,the BCA will always have your full record on file which
makes the expungement process pointless in some cases. If you are cross referenced with that agency
(which many employers are now doing instead of court records) the expungement process was a waste of time for you. I think the only remedy would be to
have the record/s permanently sealed through the courts. It may not fit all cases, but I am absolutely sure that the BCA keeps your entire record,
which is accessible by employers, so why not foreign governments? Anyone else have experience with this? I am speaking strictly through personal
experience, so additional info is appreciated
I read an earlier post saying that sealing a record and expungement are the same thing. As per my experience, they are NOT.
But this is another discussion for another time I suppose, though anyone with personal experience or expertise is welcome to share and enlighten!
