Usually, when a criminal record is expunged records held by all agencies that were involved are destroyed. With sealing, they are not shredded or burnt. They are simply sealed with tape. Understandably, many people prefer to have their records expunged rather than just sealed. An experienced attorney will be able to work through the system to get that done for most offenses.
