Expungement is the removal of criminal charges from the public record. If you are interested in having criminal charges removed, HPRP offers expungement intakes at community-based sites (but not at our office) to homeless and low-income persons with Maryland state criminal records. To find out if you are eligible to petition the court for expungement of criminal charges on your records, come to one of our intake sessions.
HPRP offers intake at these following locations:
In Baltimore City:
HPRP is currently conducting expungement intakes remotely due to COVID-19. To inquire about a remote expungement intake, please call (410) 685-6589 ext. 18 and leave a voicemail with your name and phone number.
In Montgomery County:
Montgomery and Prince George’s County residents seeking an expungement can request a phone intake by calling 410-387-3126, Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. Due to closures within the courts, there may be significant delays in the expungement process.
