19. Can I have a record restricted if I completed a drug court or mental health court program?

If you are arrested after July 1, 2013, and successfully complete a drug court or mental health court treatment program, the charges handled in that court will be restricted five (5) years after you complete the program. To qualify you must have no arrests within that five (5) year period, other than minor traffic offenses. You or your attorney should make sure the clerk of court or prosecutor enters the restriction into the GCIC database after the five (5) years have elapsed.

If you successfully completed a drug court or mental health court program before July 1, 2013, you need to apply for restriction with the arresting agency. To qualify you must have no arrests, other than minor traffic offenses, within the last five (5) years.
