Muskogee County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Arrest and criminal records are not the same regarding content, record creation process, and their custodian agencies. Arrest records in Muskogee County are primarily under the purview of the county's law enforcement bodies. In contrast, state-level agencies maintain criminal records. For example, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation serves as the record custodian for criminal records.

The records’ contents are also different. Arrest records only contain information related to the arrest event; they don't feature conviction records. On the other hand, criminal records contain some arrest data and conviction details.

Arrest records do not indicate if the record subject is guilty of the offense. However, criminal records show enough evidence to convict the offender.

How Long Do Arrests Stay on Your Record?

Muskogee County arrest records will remain on record unless the court expunges or seals them from public view. In some cases, the OSBI will automatically remove arrest records that are eligible for expungement.

Expunge Muskogee County Arrest Records

Per 22 OK Stat. § 19 (2023), you can expunge Muskogee County arrest records by filing a petition with the district court where the crime was recorded. The OSBI also files expungement petitions for eligible arrest records.

Who is eligible to expunge arrest records in Muskogee County?

Per 22 OK Stat § 18v2 (2023), only the following persons can expunge arrest records:

  • The person was wrongly arrested due to identity theft or misappropriation
  • The person was a minor at the time of the offense and already received a pardon.
  • The person was charged with a felony or misdemeanor, but the charges were dismissed.
  • The person has completed the sentence and has no pending felony or misdemeanor charges
  • The person has been acquitted
  • The appellate court reversed the judgment and dismissed the case
  • The person received a full pardon from the governor

How can I expunge arrest records in Muskogee County?

Per Section 18, you can expunge Muskogee arrest records by petitioning the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The petition must include your full name, social security number, birth date, arrest charges, arrest date, and outcome of the charges. If you are filing to expunge a domestic-related charge, you must include a police report that explains your relationship with the victim. Note that you can expunge multiple arrest charges with one petition.
