You cannot get a shoplifting conviction expunged unless you were under the age of 18 and the circumstances of the shoplifting offense were minor.

Expungement is the act of sealing past criminal records from the public’s eye. Maine’s expungement laws are some of the strictest in the country.

No matter what the underlying criminal offense was, it will stay on your criminal history forever if you were over 18 at the time.

The only time an adult can have a criminal record expunged is if the offense was a Class E crime and the adult was between 18 and 21 years old at the time of the offense.

Because most shoplifting allegations are Class E crimes, it is possible for young adults to successfully have their shoplifting record expunged but only if the requirements are satisfied.

If you were under 18, then the rules of juvenile court come into play and you are far more likely to get your record sealed from public view.
