Expungement of Records Can Free You from the Past
If you have EVER been charged with a criminal offense, that charge is part of your permanent record, even if it was ultimately dismissed. It is there for potential employers to see and could hinder employment opportunities and cause other problems. An expungement of records with the help of Sawyer Law can clear your criminal record of past charges to help you make a REAL fresh start.
Expungement Laws in NC Have Changed
An expungement (also called expunction) is a process that "seals" or erases a criminal charge in the eyes of the law. In the past, only one expungement was allowed in a LIFETIME. Recent changes in North Carolina law have made it possible to have multiple offenses expunged, however, there are limiting factors. Call Sawyer Law today 336-274-5552 to see if you are a good candidate for this process. The initial consultation with an experienced lawyer is FREE and our fees for this process are extremely reasonable.
A Blemished Criminal Record Causes Problems
We all make mistakes from time to time, but hopefully we learn from them. And sometimes you can be charged with a crime even if you are totally innocent! Sure, the charges might be dismissed, but the fact that you were charged lingers on your record. It might be a shoplifting charge you faced years ago that was dismissed because the court agreed that you were innocent. Perhaps it's an assault charge an acquaintance brought against you when he was angry, but then asked the court to drop the charges. Whatever it is, it can cause you problems even though it was dismissed. Employers, landlords, universities and others sometimes want a look at your criminal record. You might not even be aware that the reason you did not get the last few jobs you tried for was because your criminal record was blemished and cast a cloud of doubt that made those potential employers look at the next candidate rather than taking a chance on you. An expungement of records can help clear things up. Call Sawyer Law for a FREE consultation at 336-274-5552.
Free Yourself from the Past for Good!
Having a clear record for potential employers, landlords and others can be extremely important to your future. With many looking to improve their situation once these difficult times are behind us, you don't want something from your past clouding your future. Even if the charges on your record were dismissed without a trial, or you were found not guilty by the court, they will still be on your criminal record creating a cloud of uncertainty that may be disturbing to people who do not know you well. They will wonder why you were charged, and why the charges were dismissed. They might think you worked a deal, or had friends in high places. For them to assume you were totally innocent is unlikely even if it is so. Why worry about this if you can clear the record for good?

Expunctions are Even Available for Some Convictions
Under certain circumstances expunctions are available for convictions of non-violent misdemeanors or low-level felonies. The requirements for expunctions of convictions are very complex. Your eligibility may depend on how much time has passed since the conviction, your age at the time of the offense, whether you've had any other charges, and a number of other factors. The experienced lawyers at Sawyer Law can look at your situation and see if you qualify. It could be the beginning of a bright new future for you.
