Post-Conviction Remedies

Clearing Your Record After A Conviction*

If you have a conviction on your record in Ohio, turn to an attorney at Wolfe Law Group, LLC, in Columbus for help. We will review the circumstances of your conviction and provide an honest evaluation of what options may be available for firearm rights restoration, expungement of your record or appealing your conviction.

If you accepted a plea agreement or were found guilty in court, there may be consequences that you did not consider previously, such as restrictions on your ability to own a firearm, sex offender registration requirements, a suspended jail or prison sentence, or simply the effect of having a conviction on your record.

There are different types of post-conviction remedies. Most commonly, people think of appealing a conviction to a higher court. However, seeking a post-conviction remedy doesn't always mean appealing a decision through the courts. If your right to own a firearm has been restricted, it might be possible to restore that right. In the event of a sex offense that requires registration on the sex offender registry, a remedy may include getting your name off the list. Often, a remedy is as simple as having the record of the conviction sealed or expunged.
