In Indiana the State Laws refer to expungement and after one is granted, the records are either sealed or marked ‘expunged.’

Sealed Records: Once eligible convictions and non-convictions are expunged, the arresting agency, bureau of motor vehicles, the court, the department of correction, Indiana State Police, and any other involved entity are ordered to seal any records concerning the conviction or arrest. Once a record is sealed that information cannot be disclosed unless there is an order from a judge or under very limited circumstances.

Records marked ‘expunged’: When this happens, a person’s rights are restored and they may not be discriminated against because of their record. However, they are still visible on public records.
