How Long Will an Arrest Report Stay on your Nebraska State Records?

In Nebraska, arrests will stay on a criminal record forever. However, offenders can request either a “pardon” or a “set aside.” A pardon is granted by the Governor and forgives the crime. A set aside is issued by the courts, and it nullifies the crimes. Instead of sealing or hiding the records, the set aside will be posted with them so that extra information can be taken into account when someone reviews them.

Can you Expunge your Records?

Nebraska does not allow expungement of any criminal records. They do however offer the option of getting them “pardoned” or “ set aside,” but with either one, they will not be erased.
