When a person is charged with a criminal allegation, part of the arrest procedure involves the police taking your fingerprints and photographs. If you are found not guilty, or your charges are withdrawn, or you receive a non-conviction result, you can apply to have your fingerprints and photographs taken upon arrest destroyed, sometimes after a specific period of time. Our experienced defence lawyers can help you with fingerprint destruction to ensure your future isn't affected by a criminal allegation.
At Andrews Benko & Associates, we know how important it is for those charged with crimes to move on with their lives. Having your fingerprints on file can make finding employment difficult and impact other areas of your life, such as volunteer work. We can help you apply for the destruction of fingerprints and work with you through the process so that you can get back on track with your life as soon as possible. Contact us today.
