Campbell County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Campbell County arrest and criminal records are records created due to the arrest of individuals in the county. However, the unique difference between them is that only an arrest was made for arrest records, and charges may or may not be made afterward. In some cases, they are dropped even after charges are made after an arrest. Criminal records, on the other hand, typically start with an arrest and lead to a conviction, or the arrestee makes a guilty plea after the arrest during the trial process.

Arrest records generally show the arrests made by law enforcement in the county. Criminal records, on the other hand, include arrest records, charges, court proceedings, court dispositions, passed sentences, convictions, probation or parole information, plea bargains, incarceration information, expungements, and pardons. The courts in the county typically maintain criminal records.

How Long Do Arrests Stay on Your Record?

The length of time arrests stay on the records of arrested individuals in Campbell County, Virginia, depends on multiple factors. These include whether the arrest led to a conviction or not, if the arrest was for a misdemeanor or felony, or if the arrestee takes action to expunge the records. Virginia House Bill 2113 and Virginia Senate Bill 1406 provide for the sealing of Marijuana offenses specifically and convictions generally. HB 2113 provides for the sealing of misdemeanors that do not lead to convictions and felony charges that lead to acquittals. It also provides for the automatic erasure of records pertaining to certain misdemeanor marijuana offenses. Virginia’s laws provide for both automatic and petition-based sealing of arrest records.

Expunge Campbell County Arrest Records

Persons in Virginia who were acquitted of the charges against them or the charges were dismissed are eligible for the expungement of the arrests or court records per Virginia Code Ann. § 19.2-392.2 if the persons have no prior criminal records and the arrest was for a misdemeanor related infraction. These persons may start the process by filing a petition with the Campbell County Circuit Court. Where a pardon was granted for the innocence of someone in Campbell County, the pardon is grounds for automatic expungement of the related arrests or court records.

However, Campbell County has no systems for expunging juvenile records. Most juvenile court records are confidential and are only available by statute or court order.

With the passing of the Virginia Senate Bill 5033 in 2020, residents of Campbell County and other state residents may have charges brought against them deferred upon the agreement of the prosecutor and the defendant. The parties will continue the case under reasonable terms and conditions will be agreed upon. This provides for modifying the final disposition to the conviction of an alternative charge, the original, or dismissal. If charges are dismissed, they may be expunged with the prosecutor's agreement.

Virginia Senate Bill SB1406 eliminates the criminal penalty for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for a person 21 years or older. All records of charges, arrests, court records, and convictions are automatically expunged by July 1, 2025.

To petition for expungement in Campbell County, interested persons fill out the Petition for Expungement Form and file it, along with a cover letter explaining the request and a set of fingerprints, with the Campbell County Circuit Court. The filing fee is $86. A copy of the petition should also be served to the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Attorney in Campbell County. After the petition, petitioners are to attend a court hearing where a judge will review the petition. An expungement order will be issued if the judge grants the petition.
