FAQ / Sealing An Arrest Record.

Another option for cleaning up your criminal record is to "seal" certain arrests. "Sealing" means preventing anyone—even you—from seeing that part of your record without an order from a court. See D.C. Super. Ct. R. Cr. P. 118(f). In the District of Columbia, an arrest that did not result in a trial can be sealed in certain circumstances. See D.C. Super. Ct. R. Cr.
P. 118; see also District of Columbia v. Hudson, 404 A.2d 175, 181 (D.C. 1979) (en banc). No other charges can be sealed. A sealed case will not appear on a MPD or FBI record and will look like this on a Superior Court criminal record
