An arrest record or criminal conviction can be difficult to overcome. There is the stigma of being labeled a criminal and finding housing and employment can be difficult because most employers and landlords conduct background checks. You may also be denied entrance into university or trade schools.
In 2013, the Indiana Legislature recognized the difficulty people may have moving forward with their lives and offered relief to those convicted of certain misdemeanors and felonies. They passed the Indiana Expungement Law, which is also known as the Second Chance Law. This law prohibits unlawful discrimination against those who have had their records expunged. In fact, a person whose record has been expunged must be treated as if they have never been convicted of that offense.
