Oh, okay. Well, in this case, you'd have to file in Alaska, and we look to Alaska law. And that is bad news. Alaska's expungement laws are very simple because the State of Alaska has no law to expunge criminal records
. Adult and juvenile
defendants can only apply to have their records sealed
. Generally, sealed records are only for a judge's eyes when sentencing a repeat offender, so no background check would catch it.
However, the only circumstances in which a person's records may be sealed is when it can be proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant had been falsely accused of a crime or was convicted by mistaken identity. Applications to have criminal records sealed are processed and handled by local and State law enforcement.
Therefore, I am afraid again, your only choice is a state pardon:
Read that and apply if you wish. Again, success rates are low. Upon a pardon, it can be sealed.
