What are the changes to sealing your record in Nevada?
What are the changes to sealing your record in Nevada? In 2017, the Nevada legislature made some changes to the ceiling statute. When a person seals their record in the state of Nevada, they can present themselves as if their arrest or conviction never occurred. But there are very specific standards as to when a person conceals specific convictions.
For example, with a misdemeanor, you used to have to wait two years for your record to be sealed. Now it is only one year. And with a gross misdemeanor, what used to be seven years is now only two years. For a category felony E, it is two years. And for Category B, C, and D felonies, you have to wait five years. Finally, with a category A felony, you have to wait 10 years.
In addition, for a person who has been dishonorably discharged, they now has the ability to actually have their record sealed as well.
Overall, there are a lot of nuances to sealing your record. So, it is important you consult with an attorney to see if your record is sealed. Give us a call at the Law Office of Joel Mann and we can help.
