New Mexico allows for the expungement of arrest records if the arrest was for a misdemeanor or petty misdemeanor offense and the arrest was not for a crime of moral turpitude, and if records of a final outcome following arrest cannot be located.
If you agreed to a deferred imposition of sentence, if you have a conditional discharge without an adjudication, or if you are a first time drug possession offender, New Mexico may allow you to expunge/seal those criminal records.
Upon motion to the court, records are automatically sealed after finding that a juvenile is not a delinquent offender.
If you were adjudicated delinquent, sealing is available, upon motion, after a two-year waiting period, during which there was no subsequent adjudication or conviction for any felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude.
If you are not eligible to have your New Mexico criminal record expunged/sealed, you still may be eligible for a pardon or other relief. The New Mexico Constitution gives the Governor the power to grant reprieves and pardons.
