Talk to Jesse Kalter to See if You Qualify for the Reductions in Nevada Record Sealing Wait Time
Getting life back together after a criminal conviction is incredibly important. The new reductions in the Nevada record sealing wait time can make this process easier and faster. The statutory wait time for Nevada record sealing has hindered many people from returning to a normal life. With a criminal conviction on their record, it is difficult to get a job or acquire housing.
The Nevada legislature recognized that many people who are sealing their records have already taken major steps to improve their lives and have committed to being law-abiding citizens. So as part of AB237, they decided to reduce the statutory wait time for many felonies and misdemeanors. This means that those who have been convicted can have their records sealed faster and return to life without a conviction looming over their head.
New Statutory Wait Time to Seal a Nevada Record with a Felony
Category A Felony
Two types of category A felonies have had their record sealing wait time reduced from fifteen years down to ten. They involve a crime of violence under NRS 200.408 and burglary under NRS 205.060.
Category B, C, and D felonies
The wait time for all Category B felonies has been reduced to five years down from fifteen. All Category C and D felonies have had their wait time reduced to five years down from twelve.
Category E Felony
The wait time for a Category E felony has been reduced to two years down from seven.

Jesse Kalter has Helped Hundreds of Nevadans Seal Their Records
While these new laws are designed to help people get their life back on track, there is still one big roadblock. The prosecuting attorney retains the right to contest the record sealing and the judge deny it. It is not a good idea to represent yourself if this occurs. If someone wants to have the best possible outcome when it comes to sealing their record, they need the experience of a knowledgeable lawyer. Jesse Kalter has been sealing Nevadans’ records for almost 2 decades. He has helped hundreds of people achieve the final step to getting their life back. He is available to serve the people of Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Fallon, Fernley, Dayton, Yerington, Douglas County, and all other Northern NV rural counties.
