Frequently individuals who received criminal charges in NC are interested in having their criminal records expunged. Criminal background checks are becoming more common prior to admission to school, training programs, and employment. Having a clean criminal record is becoming more important in our society.
Eligibility For A North Carolina Expungement
Two types of people are eligible for a NC criminal expungement. The first group consists of persons convicted of a criminal misdemeanor while under the age of 18. The main requirement for eligibility for such a person is a clean record since the conviction (traffic violations do not count).
The second group of people who are eligible for a NC expungement are those individuals who were arrested or charged with a crime, but subsequently the criminal charges were dismissed, or the person was found not-guilty or not responsible in a court of law. To be eligible for an expungement under those circumstances a person must not have a prior expungement or any felony convictions.
While an expungement for an offender under 18 is a more complicated process, in both cases one must apply to the NC court for the expungement and a hearing will be held regarding the NC expungement.
Advantages of A North Carolina Expungement
The advantage of a criminal record expungement in NC by a lawyer is that a person can truthfully and lawfully say that he or she was never arrested, charged, or convicted of the offense in question. This is a valuable option when filling out applications for school or work, and it applies in all situations in NC. Any inquiry made of the individual for any purpose can truthfully be answered in the negative after an exupungement and all of the state’s records must reflect the expungement.
