Oklahoma Expungement Law Changes 2016

Effective November 1, 2016 many Oklahomans will be eligible for an expungement (sealing of their criminal/arrest record) pursuant to the amendments of Oklahoma’s Expungement laws. In June of 2016, Governor Fallin signed HB2397 which creates additional expungement eligibility. For example, a person who pleaded guilty and┬áreceived a deferred sentence for a non-violent felony offense, may be eligible for an arrest record expungement 5 years after the end of their deferred sentence.
