Why do expunged cases sometimes appear on background checks?

In a webpage posted here, attorney Brent Horst of Horst Law outlines possible reasons an expunged record may appear on a background check.

Records that should have been expunged but appear on background checks can have real consequences on a person’s life, as some lenders, employers, or landlords may deny their services to individuals who have a criminal record.

If you were accused of a crime that was dismissed or could otherwise be expunged, you owe it to yourself to make sure it does not appear in your criminal history. Call Horst Law to learn more about how record expungement can prove beneficial to you. Dial .
