   Character Reference For Expungement

Your Honor,

I am writing this statement on behalf of {Name}, who is set to appear before you in court on {date} to request expungement of {his/her} criminal record.

I am {Name}'s {relationship to Name}, and I have known {him/her} for {number} years, since {date}. I am a {profession} at {Company} in {location}.

I'm sure you know the details of {Name}'s arrest. {He/she} has always been honest and upfront about the regrettable choices that led to {illegal incident}. On {date}, {brief summary of events}. As terrible as that day was, it was a turning point for {Name}. {He/she} recognized that {impetus} was toxic and that something had to change in {his/her} behavior.

Since {date}, {Name} has not gone near {toxic impetus}. Instead, {he/she} has {pursued higher education, joined a community activity, become a sponsor, etc.}. Currently, {he/she} is employed, in a relationship, and working hard toward success. I see {Name} on {frequency} basis, and I have found {him/her} healthy and grateful for the opportunity to make positive choices.

The system that punished {Name} did exactly what it was intended for: It produced a functioning and hard-working member of society. I know that with {his/her} record expunged, {Name} could go on to achieve {productive goal}.

Thank you for your consideration.
