To have satisfied the civil liabilities arising from the infraction.

Article 136

1. Convicted persons who have extinguished their criminal liability are entitled to obtain from the Ministry of Justice, ex officio or at the request of a party, the cancellation of their criminal record, when the following periods of time have elapsed without having reoffended:

  • Six months for minor penalties.
  • Two years for sentences not exceeding 12 months and those imposed for reckless offenses.
  • Three years for the remaining less serious penalties of less than three years.
  • Five years for the remaining less serious penalties, equal to or greater than three years.
  • Ten years for serious penalties

Frequently Asked Questions

START OF THE COMPUTATION FOR THE TERM:

A mistake that is sometimes made is to think that this period begins when the sentence becomes final. This is not correct. The time from which the term begins to run is the day following the day on which the sentence is extinguished, regardless of whether or not it has been served.

CASES OF CONDITIONAL REMISSION:

It happens very frequently in small convictions. What happens if the sentence was suspended, the sentence was less than two years and we were given this benefit that meant we did not have to go to prison?

In this case, first the time limit set by the judge to obtain the definitive remission must be fulfilled, which can be from 2 to 5 years without reoffending; and after having passed this time satisfactorily, the term will begin on the day following that on which the sentence would have been fulfilled, if the conditional remission had not been enjoyed.

Of course, in any case, if new offenses are committed during the term of the cancellation, there is no possibility of cancellation.

WHAT IS A POLICE RECORD? HOW TO CANCEL POLICE RECORDS MALAGA

Police records arise from facts typified in the current Penal Code as crimes of an administrative nature that have given rise by the State Security Forces and Corps to the instruction of proceedings and their subsequent referral to the Judicial or Administrative Authorities.

In the National Police Force, unfavorable police records are recorded in the file called “PERSONS” for the management of records of persons of police interest or better known as “PERPOL”.

In the Civil Guard, police records are collected in the file of Police Interest called “INTPOL”.

Therefore, if you have ever been arrested or identified by the State Security Forces and Corps, for the alleged commission of a crime or administrative infraction, it is possible that your data may appear in a police database and therefore you may have a police record.

If after your identification or detention by the Police for the alleged commission of a crime, an acquittal is pronounced or the case is filed, you can request its cancellation from the finality of the Judgment or from the Order of filing.

In the event that you appear in any of the above mentioned registers, which can be verified by means of the corresponding request, you must fill in the corresponding cancellation form, which will be different depending on whether you appear in the register of the National Police or in that of the Civil Guard.

WHAT IS A CRIMINAL RECORD?

Once a final conviction for a crime has been handed down, the Court or Tribunal in charge of its execution must send to the Central Registry of Convicts and Rebels a certificate stating the identity of the convicted person, the crime for which he/she has been convicted, the sentence imposed, as well as the date on which the sentence became final.

Such annotation in the aforementioned registry is called a criminal record.

WHAT IS THE CENTRAL REGISTRY OF CONVICTS AND REBELS?

The Central Registry of Convicts and Rebels is a registry that depends on the Ministry of Justice, specifically on the General Subdirectorate of Judicial Registries, where final decisions for the commission of a crime or misdemeanor that impose penalties or security measures, issued by the Courts or Tribunals of the criminal jurisdictional order, are registered.

Article 136.1 of the Penal Code articulates for individuals convicted by final judgment who have extinguished their criminal liability, the right to obtain from the Ministry of Justice the cancellation of their criminal record, subject to a report from the sentencing Judge or Court.

For the effective recognition of the right of cancellation it is necessary, in addition to the extinction of criminal liability, the fulfillment of the indispensable requirements demanded by law.

WHAT ARE THE PREREQUISITES FOR EXPUNGING A CRIMINAL RECORD?

Article 136.2 of the Penal Code establishes:

To have satisfied the civil liabilities arising from the sanction, except in cases of insolvency declared by the Judge or Court and unless the defendant has improved financially.
The passing of the following periods of time without reoffending, which shall be counted from the day following the day on which the sentence was extinguished:

  • 6 months for minor penalties
  • 2 years for less serious offenses not exceeding twelve months and those imposed for imprudent offenses
  • 3 years for the remaining less serious penalties
  • 5 years for serious penalties.

Therefore, the cancellation of the criminal record derived from a case will proceed when, once the criminal and civil liabilities imposed in the corresponding sentence have been fully extinguished, the terms established by law for each of the penalties have elapsed without reoffending.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE ESTABLISHED FOR THE RESOLUTION OF CRIMINAL RECORD EXPUNGEMENT PROCEEDINGS?

Pursuant to Royal Decree 1879/1994, of September 15, 1994, the stipulated term will be 3 MONTHS initiated at the request of a party. Once this period has elapsed without interruptions, the cancellation may be deemed to have been upheld when there has been no express resolution.
