UPDATE CRIMINAL HISTORY HEADER
Updating Criminal Records

 

The following Certified documents are required to update a criminal record with a final disposition.  Without these documents the OSBI cannot update your record.  Please click here (or on the FORMS icon below) and include this form with your request for update.


•  If charges were filed (you went to court or were represented in court by an attorney)


A Certified copy of the final disposition should be obtained from the Court Clerk’s Office in the county of arrest.  If charges were handled in city court, contact the municipal court in the city of arrest.


•  If you received a deferred sentence and upon successful completion –


A Certified copy of the deferred dismissal should be obtained from the Court Clerk’s Office in the county* of arrest.  If the case is no longer on file at the Court Clerk’s Office, contact the District Attorney’s Office for a certified copy. 

*If charges were handled in city court, contact the municipal court in the city of arrest.


Note:  State law does not allow for the complete removal of an arrest that results in a deferred sentence.  The arrest will always be a part of the criminal record and the disposition will be updated to read Pled Not Guilty, Case Dismissed resulting in no conviction for that arrest.


•  If charges were not filed (you did not go to court nor did an attorney appear in court on your behalf) you must obtain 3 certified documents. The necessary documents are explained below:


A Certified letter must be obtained stating there is no record of the arrest in the files of the County and/or City Court Clerk.   The letter must be signed and certified by the County and/or City Court Clerk; 

and 

A Certified letter must be obtained from the District Attorney’s Office in the county of the arrest.  This letter must be written on District Attorney office letterhead and signed by the District Attorney or Assistant District Attorney stating there is no record of the arrest in the files of the District Attorney.  

 
When no record exists at the Court Clerk’s Office or the District Attorney’s Office, a certified copy of the arrest/incident report relating to that arrest must be obtained from the arresting agency.

You may call the automated-attendant line (405) 879-2690 for additional information.
