Expunging a record means that the court orders the records of the arrest, investigation, detention, and conviction in the criminal case are sealed.
This page will describe the process for obtaining an expungement through the Logan City Justice Court.
How-To: Get an Expungement in Logan Justice Court
1. You must first obtain a certificate of eligibility from the Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI).This may take up to 14 Weeks.
2. Completion of the Petition: You must then fill out the Petition for Expungement and Sealing of Record and submit it to the court.
3. Serving the Petition: The petition must be served on the prosecuting attorney and the Department of Corrections. Unless a stipulation is obtained, expungement may not be granted until 60 days after service of the petition on those parties. This allows time for the prosecuting attorney and the victim to file a written objection to the petition, and for the court to order an evaluation, if necessary. If an objection is filed, the court must set a hearing and notify the prosecuting attorney, petitioner, and victim of the hearing date.
4. Written Evaluation: The court may order the Department of Corrections to prepare a written evaluation regarding the petition, including its recommendations. If you file a written objection to the conclusions and recommendation in the evaluation within 15 days after receipt of the evaluation, the court will set a hearing date and notify the parties listed above.
5. Hearing: The court may hold a hearing. Or, if there are no objections to the Petition, the court may make a decision based on written documentation.
6. Findings of the Court: After approving a petition for expungement, the court shall enter an order to expunge all or a portion of the case records.
You, not the court, are responsible for service of the order on affected agencies. Agencies to be notified include:
- The prosecuting agency
- The arresting agency
- The booking agency
- The State agency (BCI)
