The state of Iowa provides public access to online court records. Most of the information is available for free and at any time, however, it may be showing something on your record that was dismissed. This bevy of information provides many values, but can also be detrimental to those who have been to court and found not guilty. Starting on January 1st defendants who had charges dismissed or were found not guilty can get the cases off their record. This doesn’t happen automatically the defendant, prosecutor and court must take action. Not everyone has taken advantage of this new law likely because they are unaware in they qualify or are unaware of how to request it. There are a number of conditions that must be met before you can get your record wiped.
