What can I do to clean up my criminal record? 1 Answers as of March 08, 2011I was promised I would only have one misdemeanor on my record when I completed deferred judgement. I have transcripts from judge to prove this. I still have original (felony) accusations on my record. Court denied petition to seal.

The only cases that can be sealed are cases that are (1) totally dismissed or (2) minor drug offenses after 10 years. Sounds like you had a 'split plea' - deferred to a felony and plea and probation to a misdemeanor. You cannot seal that record. The fact of the arrest still remains, but should reflect the felony was dismissed - if not, send in proof of the dismissal to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations. The court likely said the only "conviction" you'll have in the end is to a misdemeanor - not the only "record" you'll have. A "criminal record" is an arrest record - not a conviction record.
