Do You Qualify To Clear Your Criminal Record?

To protect your privacy, you can have certain crimes, charges and arrest records erased from public records. This can be a critical step if you do not want future employers, lenders, landlords or colleges to learn of your arrest or conviction when they do a background check. Arrests, charges and convictions are a matter of public record, so it is also possible that an Internet search will allow anyone to view your criminal record.

A criminal record can follow you for the rest of your life, affecting your opportunities in the future. If you meet certain criteria, however, you may be able to have the crime expunged from your record. When you are granted an expungement, you may legally deny that you were arrested, charged or convicted of the expunged offense.

You may be able to expunge your record in the following circumstances:

  • If you pled guilty to a crime when you were under age 18
  • If you were found not guilty or received a dismissal of the charges against you
  • Under N.C.G.S. 90-96, first-time misdemeanor drug possession and paraphernalia charges may be expunged for people under age 21

In general, you are not eligible for an expungement if you have been granted one in the past, you have a previous misdemeanor or felony conviction, you have pending criminal charges or a charge that involves a motor vehicle violation.

All cases are unique, and you should discuss yours with an attorney.
