Criminal Records Expungement Act
On January 1st, 2020, the Criminal Records Expungement Act went into effect in New Mexico. This new law allows those looking to move on from a past arrest or conviction to petition the courts to expunge their criminal records. The law also covers cases of identity theft where someone was arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime using someone else’s name or identification.
