I am sure this is very painful for you. Here are the guidelines for expungement in Ohio
If it was a first offense - (where all convictions connected or separate years)
If he was given a probation in lieu of jail time OR
If he was a juvenile
You can read more on Ohio Expungements HERE ( 2953.32)
If he does not qualify for the direct expungement then he can apply for the pardon via the Governor's office. There are no guarantees he would get the pardon and there are no guarantees that if he gets the pardon he would get the expungement.
However, these are his only options. I know you wanted to knw about the expungement assistant services - and I just wanted to give you the information on the law so that if you contact one of these services they don't try to take you for a ride. Knowledge, as they say, is power.
I wish it were better news for you and your family. You would think that after 10 years of being clean and productive that would be recognized by the courts and that each case would be evaluated on the progress and merits. You also can contact your local STATE elected officials and discuss this matter to see if there is someone who would consider new legislation which would change Ohio expungement laws so that each is viewed and considered on their own merits.
