Your New Permanent Record?

Sarah A. Dcriminalowney  wrote an interesting article about your “new” permanent record. Because newspapers publish the story of one’s arrest online for everyone to see, it does not simply disappear, no matter if you were found guilty or not. She uses the example of a person’s record being legally expunged, yet if you google the name the case will still show the person as a criminal. It is scary to think that you may have never done anything wrong but if you were even a suspect, your name will be linked to the case online forever.
