My question involves criminal records for the state of: Ohio
My daughter, when she was 18, was caught shoplifting from a Walmart store in Ohio. The item she tried to take was $1.95.
She was escorted by store security, handcuffed, and then put in a police car and taken to the local jail.
She was fingerprinted, and released in 2 hours. Two weeks later she returned to a hearing, and was ordered to pay a $250.00 fine
and that was the last we had heard.
Brief background, my daughter, in her last year of high school, at the age of 18, was going through difficult times, she eventually was diagnosed with manic depressive disorder (bi-polar) shortly after that. It was quite the process for our entire family. But, we are so proud of our beautiful daughter for staying strong and moving forward.
She is in her 3rd year of college, majoring in education, and will have to go into the classroom to obtain some of her credits. We obviously want to try to get an expungement, but our concern is that she was fingerprinted.
Does getting this expunged from her record also include removing her record of being fingerprinted?
How long does the process of getting an expungement take in Ohio?
We would have done all this sooner, but I think we put it all out of our mind!
Thanks so much,
