Are you 18 years or older? Since you were 18, have you been convicted of a crime? If so, you may be eligible to expunge your conviction record in Utah.
First, look at the time periods below to see if a sufficient amount of time has passed for your conviction to be expunged:
- Ten (10) years for DUI and DUI Metabolite convictions

- Four (4) years for a class B misdemeanor
- Three (3) years for any other misdemeanor or infraction
What Utah Crimes Cannot Be Expunged?
Some Utah crimes cannot be expunged. For example, first degree felonies, second degree forcible felonies, capital felonies, and DUI felonies cannot be expunged. Likewise, certain sex crimes including sex crimes against minors or any registrable sex offense cannot be expunged. Automobile homicide is another Utah crime that cannot be expunged.
In 2010, Utah changed its law to allow you to get multiple misdemeanors and felonies expunged. It used to be that you could only get a certain number of convictions expunged. For example, generally you could only get two separate convictions (meaning from different offenses) or less expunged and only one of those two convictions could be a felony conviction. The Utah Expungement Act of 2010 changed all of that and now you can get any felony or misdemeanor expunged as long as you have finished your probation and paid all of your fines and restitution if ordered by the court.
