Expungement generally means the clearing, extraction and isolation of all records on file within any court, detention or correctional facility, law enforcement agency or criminal justice agency concerning a persons detection, apprehension, arrest, detention, trial, or disposition of an offense within the criminal justice system by removal, deletion, erasing, sealing, destroying and other processes.
Expungements are not seen as a right by the state. It is a privilege granted to the petitioner only after the proper paperwork has been filed (correctly). The conditions vary from state to state but basically this privilege is reserved for 1st offenses and the reasons for seeking expungement factor into the decision making process.
Once you expunge a speeding ticket, the law allows you to say it never happened. It allows you to answer 'NO' on questions that ask if you have ever been convicted of a crime on job applications, etc.
It is the ultimate form of relief for convicted persons and anyone with a criminal conviction record should research ways to remove the record as soon as possible (eligible).
If the petitioner is eligible for a speeding ticket expungement, almost any and all records with few exceptions can be expunged. These records also include all complaints, warrants, arrests, commitments, processing records, fingerprints, photographs, index cards, 'rap sheets' and judicial dockets.
