The North Carolina State Legislature recently passed a new law that allows for the expunction of certain non-violent felonies when the offense was committed by someone under the age of eighteen. The law goes into effect on December 1, 2011.
If you have a felony conviction in your record for a crime that occurred before you turned eighteen, Sanders Law Firm may be able to have that conviction removed from your record if you have not been convicted of any other misdemeanor or felony other than a traffic violation. The petition cannot be filed until four years after the date of conviction, release, end of probation, or end of parole, whichever is later. There are other requirements that must be fulfilled as well, including payment of a fee to the state. However, in the end, your felony conviction can be removed from your criminal record.
Call Sanders Law Firm (336) 724-4707 to determine whether you qualify. We will handle all the paperwork and court appearances on your behalf. Don’t let one mistake haunt you for the rest of your life.
