Learn More About Getting An Expungement

An expungement is a mechanism provided under the Mississippi statute that allows a way to “seal” or “clear” an eligible criminal charge or conviction. Whether you seek peace of mind or a clean record for a potential employer, an expungement allows a person to restore their record to the same status it held before the charge. Upon successful expungement, one is no longer required to disclose or acknowledge the underlying arrest or conviction in most circumstances.
