Since Maine no longer allows for the expungement of criminal records, the only option for individuals with certain criminal convictions on their record is to petition the Governor for Executive Clemency.

The practical difference is that unlike prior expungement laws, the Governor’s (rare) granting of “Executive Clemency” does not “wipe” clean an individual’s criminal record.

CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORD INFORMATION ACT

The Criminal History Record Information Act (the “Act”) does not erase criminal records. It does define what constitutes “Criminal History Record Information”, and it sets forth that an individual’s criminal record contains information that falls into one of two categories:

  • Public Criminal History Record Information; and
  • Confidential Criminal History Information.

HOW IS CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORD INFORMATION DEFINED?

The Act specifies that an individual’s “Criminal History Record Information” includes, but is not limited to, identifiable notes and/or descriptions regarding:

  • An individual’s arrest(s) and summons(es)
  • An individual’s criminal detention(s)
  • Information regarding an individual’s bail
  • The formal criminal charge(s) levied against an individual, including complaints and indictments (Including information regarding any disposition of such charges)
  • And more
