When a person has a criminal history record, it is in their best interests
to get their criminal record sealed if they qualify. By getting one's
records sealed, their criminal record is no longer available for public
viewing, but certain government entities still have access to it.
With an expungement, the public does not have access to a person's
criminal record. Further, those government agencies that have access to
sealed records would not have access to an expunged record without first
obtaining a court order.
Violation of Probation
When a probationer violates a term of their probation, they will be brought
before the court and advised of their violation or charge. Depending on
the case, the court may revoke, modify, or continue the probation. When
probation is revoked the original sentence may be imposed upon the probationer.
