Dealing with hostile criminals who refused to participate in their own pardon, expungement, seal, or non-disclosure is no longer Records Removal Services is willing to do. We sincerely apologize to all the people who have written letters to us and sent thank you letters to us. Unfortunately, career criminals who refused to send the proper paperwork resulted in us deciding to close of our own free will.

Records Removal Service was never a scam and was certified by several companies, except the BBB and this is why:

Records Removal Services - New Colorado Expungement Law

The Colorado Legislature has updated expungement laws in the State.

By H. Michael Steinberg on August 13, 2011 7:30 PM

A new Colorado Law will assist people who have been convicted of certain drug crime misdemeanor and drug felonies with expunging / sealing their records

The bill amends the process for sealing the record of a criminal conviction under Colorado’s Uniform Controlled Substances Act, reduces the waiting period for certain classes of convictions, and authorizes the process of records sealing for additional classes of convictions. With limited exceptions, the bill applies only to convictions on or after July 1, 2011.

The New Law: Colorado House Bill 11-1167
Sealing criminal records – drug offenses – time periods – district attorney approval – no reporting of sealed convictions – advisement of rights – applicability July 1, 2011.

This new law – which takes effect on July 1. 2011 amends the petition process for sealing certain drug offense criminal conviction records.

It Amends the time period the defendant has to wait to petition the court to seal the record which depends on the severity of the offense.

In order to have the record sealed, the defendant must show the court that he or she has not been convicted of another offense or been charged with another offense since the discharge of the offense for which the defendant is seeking to have sealed.

District Attorney Can Object and Veto the Process
The district attorney has the right to object to the petition or veto the request for all offenses except petty offenses. Also depending on the severity of the offense, the court can:

(1) immediately order the record sealed,

or (2) can consider the petition based on established criteria,

or (3) can hold a hearing to decide the petition.

The court, in making the decision whether to seal conviction records, considers the privacy interests of the defendant against the public interest in retaining the conviction records as open records.

Conviction records cannot be sealed if the defendant still owes court-ordered restitution, fines, or fees.

A defendant who successfully petitions a court for the sealing of conviction records must provide the Colorado bureau of investigation (bureau) and each custodian of the conviction records with a copy of the court’s order to seal the conviction records and pay to the bureau any costs related to the sealing of the conviction records in the custody of the bureau.

Employers and certain institutions and agencies are prohibited from requiring an applicant to disclose information in sealed conviction records. Law enforcement will report that there are no public records in response to inquiries about sealed criminal conviction records. The office of the state court administrator must post on its web site a list of all petitions to seal conviction records that are filed with a district court.

The new law also prohibits district court from granting a petition to seal conviction records until at least 30 days following the posting.

24-72-308.6. sealing of criminal conviction records information

For offenses involving controlled substances for convictions entered on or after July 1, 2011.

(1) Definitions. For purposes of this section, “conviction records” means arrest and criminal records information and any records pertaining to a judgment of conviction.

Records Removal Services - New Indiana Expungement Law

By: Records Removal Services

Until July 2011 people convicted of criminal offenses only had the option of a Pardon by the State of Indiana. Now, the Indiana Legislature passed legislation which Governor Mitch Daniels into law and effective July 01, 2011 allows non-violent offenders to have their criminal records sealed for misdemeanor and Class D felonies.

The new expungement law applies to people who people who after eight (8) years following the completion of their sentence to have their criminal records sealed.

If granted, an individual would not be required to disclose the conviction on employment applications or any other documents outside of the criminal justice system. Furthermore, it gives ex-offenders the ability to legally state on an application for employment that they have not been convicted or arrested for a crime, removing a large barrier in finding employment.

"Every legislative session, new laws pass that directly impact the lives of Hoosiers," said Jamal L. Smith, Executive Director of the Indiana Civil Rights Commission. "It's important that we share this information with people so that everyone has a clear understanding of their rights."

Even after a seal however, Records Removal Services must still update privately owned criminal databases.

New Jersey Supreme Court rules that expungements do not negate bans on public employment

Public workers who commit crimes are barred from future public employment when the infractions involves their jobs — even if they later have their records expunged, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled on October 27, 2010.

"When a person is convicted of an offense that 'involves and touches upon' that person's public office, the obligatory forfeiture of public employment provisions of (state law) are triggered," Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto wrote for the majority. Those provisions say a person "shall be forever disqualified from holding any office or position of honor, trust or profit" in the state.

The case involves a former detective, identified in court papers only as D.H., who worked in the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office from 1985 to 1999. In June 1999, according to the decision, a local employer called and asked D.H. to conduct a criminal background check on a job applicant. D.H. checked the Criminal Justice Information System and found the prospective employee did have an arrest record.

The following month, representatives from the prosecutor's office and State Police questioned her, and she was charged in September 1999 with the disorderly persons offense of purposeful and unauthorized access of a computer. D.H. pleaded guilty and agreed to forfeit current and future public employment, the decision said.
Considering D.H.’s "unblemished past" and agreement to give up her job, a trial judge sentenced her to pay $110 in costs and penalties.

In 2008, D.H. sought to have her conviction expunged, according to court papers. In granting her request, a trial court noted "the purpose of expungement is the elimination of the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction imposed upon an otherwise law-abiding citizen," determined forfeiture of public employment was a "collateral consequence" and voided that disqualification as well.

The state lost an appeal when an appellate panel sided with the trial court. On October 27, 2010, New Jersey's highest court agreed D.H.'s record should be expunged, but a majority of five justices found her disqualification from public employment is a separate matter that stands. Justice Virginia Long dissented, saying the expungement also should have voided D.H.'s disqualification from public employment.

D.H.’s attorney, Robert Donaher, said his client committed "a minor infraction." He said the computer lookup was done for a "former member of law enforcement."

"She no longer has a criminal record," Donaher said, noting D.H. had no plans to seek a public-sector job.

"From a practical standpoint, she's vindicated."

Judge Edwin Stern did not participate in the case.

Texas Assistant Principal suspended for failure to disclose criminal history

Arlington, TX: A school assistant principal in Texas who exposed alleged wrongdoing in the school that employed him may wind up losing his job due to nondisclosure of his own past.

A UPI report dated 10/07/2010 relates the story of Joseph Palazzolo, an assistant principal with Arlington Heights High School currently on paid suspension. Palazzolo told UPI that administrators with the school board that has jurisdiction for Arlington High are recommending he be dismissed from his job because Palazzolo, it is alleged, failed to disclose his criminal history when he applied for his job in 2007.

That criminal history, according to the UPI report, includes a guilty plea to a federal misdemeanor charge in 1997 for failure to pay past-due child support, according to court records cited by the Star-Telegram newspaper of Forth Worth.

NOTE: Though federal crimes are no more serious than State crimes, the federal government has failed to "catchup" to the States in criminal record seals, expungement, or non-disclosures laws. Currently the federal government offers no way to seal or expunge federal criminal records; only a pardon VIA the United States Pardon Attorney may be an option.

For his part, Palazzolo said that in his view the campaign to have him terminated from his Texas labor and employment was borne from his efforts to blow the whistle on alleged wrongdoings.

Second Chance Act (this year called the Fresh Start Act) was presented again in Congress for federal offenders

A member of Tennessee's federal representation introduced legislation again this year for federal offenders. This bill would impact federal offenders; the federal government cannot expungement, seal, or pardon state offenses. In a lot of states, the minimum waiting period is two (2) years, but at least someone in Congress is trying to get federal laws passed to remove criminal records for federal offenders. However, Records Removal Services has witnessed this proposed legislation be presented and defeated year after year.
