Found not guilty, but still have arrest record
Do you know that if you were acquitted of a crime and not found guilty, you have no right to have the arrest record of that alleged crime, expunged or sealed? So, prospects with a future employer would be harmed by a crime that your fellow citizens did not convict you. Or, even if a grand jury didn't even indict you. In the court case United States v. Lin, a federal appeals court stated in its' majority decision that , ""acquittal, standing alone, is not in itself sufficient to warrant an expunction of an arrest record." This is effectively punishment for a crime that one did not get convicted.
Indeed, people who have been a victim of domestic violence have been arrested (along with abuser) after suffering abuse, while police are staightening out what happened. So, you might not get a job beause of being battered. Also of course, employers rely upon faulty records that show someone with a similiar name was convicted of a crime.
Arrest records should be sealed unless someone is convicted of a crime and if they are later acquitted such as a new trial etc, they should have the conviction expunged.
