Record Sealing Update
Oct. 10, 2022
The Colorado Legislature amended the record sealing statute concerning criminal cases that were dismissed. Now the procedure is (supposed to be) automatic. So once the case is dismissed, the Court is to automatically issue a record sealing order and provide it to the entities with records – like the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (arrest records), the law enforcement agency that investigated the case, the Court, the DA’s office, Probation department etc. it appears that CBI is still charging $20 to comply with the order, so it is necessary to send that to them (probably). I believe the best thing to do until the Courts get very comfortable with this, is to obtain a copy of the Order sealing the record, and send it to the agencies (and CBI with $20) and request confirmation the order is complied with. We can help assure your record sealing is done correctly.
