Sealing Records

Municipal Court records are purged after four years, in compliance with the Colorado State Retention policies. However, police records are always retained. If your record has been sealed, you are not required to disclose any information about the sealed case, including the mere fact that you were charged. 

Any defendant may petition the Court to seal records by filing a Petition to Seal Records. Please read the form carefully, as it states what cases qualify to be sealed. The filing fee of $65.00 is paid at time of submittal. Cases will not be considered for sealing without the filing fee being paid. 

Please consult state law or legal counsel with any questions you may have
