ERASE YOUR CRIMINAL RECORD with an expungement case.
Dustin was torn between sticking with his principles and knowing that he really didn't have the time to fight this.
He had been in Oklahoma City for work, and now he was happy to be heading back home to South Carolina. He had a few drinks at the Will Rogers Airport while he was waiting for his flight, well okay, maybe more than a few, but still, he was at the airport minding his own business. A police officer started asking him questions and hassling him, and the next thing you know he's being handcuffed for a public intoxication charge. Needless to say, he missed his flight home.
It was over the top and unfair.
So that was the dilemma he was in: he could hire a lawyer, take this to court, and fight it all the way. But that would mean several flights back to Oklahoma, he lived out of state, lots of time and hassle and stress. He didn't want to deal with it.
Fortunately, there was a way that he could just pay a fine, and then immediately get this erased off of his record, by getting an expungement. In the long run, even though it made him angry, he knew that was the best choice for him. So, he paid the fine for the public intoxication incident, then hired Fassio Law to handle the expungement. Within a month or two it was off his record - even though he would never forget that awful incident, at least no one else would ever know about it.
If you have a criminal case that has ended in you paying a fine, or completing probation, you might be eligible for an expungement too. Contact Fassio Law, and we can help you determine if that's the right path for you.

What is an Expungement? An expungement is a legal vehicle to clear a case or an arrest off your record. When eligible, people often seek an expungement since a criminal record can be accessed by landlords, potential employers, as well as the general public.
When am I eligible for a Section 991 expungement? Someone becomes eligible for this type of expungement if they received a deferred sentence, and the deferred sentence has ended without any probation violations and the person has completed all the requirements of the court. At this point, the case might have been dismissed as part of the deferred sentence program. However, it is still on your record.
A Section 991 expungement will result in the case being dismissed (if it has not already been dismissed) AND remove the case from public record.
A Section 991 expungement will be filed with the court, and if successful, the case as well as arrest will be taken off of public record.
