Ohio legislature has increasingly expanded the number and types of convictions that can be removed from your record. These changes occurred as a result of the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and a desire on the part of the Republican led legislature to permit more Ohioans to return to the workforce.
On October 29, 2018, the biggest changes yet to Ohio’s expungement law occurred. As of that date, a person in Ohio may expunge up to five felonies and an unlimited number of misdemeanors convictions. As with anything, there are some common sense limitations.
