How many charges can I expunge from my criminal record?
- Therefore, if you were convicted of a nonviolent misdemeanor in December 2005 and of a nonviolent felony in June 2006, it is possible that you could have both of these charges expunged from your record because they were disposed of in the same 12-month period.
- If you were convicted of both of these charges in December 2005 during the same term of court, you would also be eligible to have them expunged.
There is no limit on how many dismissals or verdicts of not guilty you can expunge. This contrasts with North Carolina expungement laws prior to December 2017, when only one expunction was allowed in most cases, even when the charges in question were dismissed. This rule only applies if you have not been convicted of a felony since the charge(s) you want to expunge were dismissed.
