Expungement is a court-ordered process to seek your legal record of an arrest or a criminal conviction being sealed under Oklahoma law or erased in the eyes of the law. When a conviction is expunged, it may also be called “setting aside a criminal conviction.” An expunged record is actually sealed in Oklahoma. It is not erased; however, it is no longer accessible to the public. New
