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 afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You can have this expunged, once the matter is resolved. You would need to contact the New Mexico Department of Public Safety.
Petition to expunge arrest information:
A. A person may petition the department to expunge arrest information on the person's state record or federal bureau of investigation record if the arrest was for a misdemeanor
or petty misdemeanor offense and the arrest was not for a crime of moral turpitude. If the department cannot locate a final disposition after contacting the arresting law enforcement agency, the administrative office of the courts and the administrative office of the district attorneys, the department shall expunge the arrest information.
B. As used in this section:
(1) "expunge" means to remove a notation of an arrest placed on a person's state record or federal bureau of investigation record; and
(2) "final disposition" means a final outcome following arrest, including nolle prosequi, a dismissal, a decision to not file charges, a referral to a pre-prosecution diversion program, placement on probation
or imposition of a fine.
