When you’re trying to seal a case, time is of the essence. Attorneys filing petitions to seal cases in Clark County should be aware that the District Attorney’s Office only reviews cases for sealing records that have resulted in charges from either a Justice Court township jurisdiction or Clark County District Court. In the past, the DA’s office would seal municipal cases. A separate petition must be submitted to Municipal Courts to seal cases in city jurisdictions.

To avoid a possible delay of processing record sealing submissions, include the required criminal history from the Central Repository. Nevada Revised Statute 179.245 on sealing records after conviction requires that a current, verified criminal history from the Central Repository in Carson City, Nevada must be included with the submission documents. The District Attorney’s office website addresses the statute on record sealing at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/district_attorney/crm/Pages/sealings.aspx.
