Post Sentence Dismissal

The Idaho code unfortunately does not offer a path to expunge criminal convictions. It does, however, have ways that convictions can be dismissed. One of those ways is through a withheld judgement. To take advantage of a withheld judgement a defendant has to decide before sentencing that they wish to take that opportunity and the defendant must meet certain criteria.

Aside from a withheld judgement there are other ways that a case can be dismissed after a sentence has been passed by the court. While these paths to relief are difficult to obtain they may be worth it if a criminal conviction is preventing you from obtaining employment or participating in certain programs. If a past criminal conviction is preventing you from succeeding in life, call Hansen Legal today to set up a consultation.
