Learn about Juvenile Expungement in Idaho

What is expungement?

Expungement means the sealing, removal, or destruction of records related to a past criminal case.

What records can be expunged?

Under Idaho law, most convictions, charges, or arrests from when you were under age 18 can qualify for expungement. However, certain more serious crimes cannot be expunged, such as: murder, voluntary manslaughter, rape, arson, aggravated battery, drug trafficking, or injury to a child.

Why expunge my juvenile criminal record?

Because your criminal record will be “erased” and off limits to the public, an expungement can help you get a job, get a federal loan for college, or get a place to live.
