Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The State of Virginia only allows a criminal record to be expunged in certain situations. I have provided those below for your review. As you can see, if you were convicted of the reckless driving and/or the situations below do not apply, the you would not be able to have this expunged and removed from your record. The outcome of the reckless driving charge
is what will dictate your ability to do so.
• A defendant in a criminal case who pleads “not guilty” and is then acquitted by a judge or jury.
• A person in a civil action
who is charged with contempt of court, but is found not guilty.
• A defendant in a criminal case that the Commonwealth Attorney’s office decides not to prosecute (nolle prosequi) for all charges.
• A defendant charged with assault and battery or other misdemeanor for which the defendant could also be sued in a civil action, if the injured person states in writing s/he has received satisfaction for the injury and the case is dismissed.
• A person whose name or identification has been used without consent or authorization in a criminal case (identity theft).
• A defendant convicted of a crime who later receives an absolute pardon
