Carroll County Courts are hosting an Expungement and Resource Clinic on Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m. at the Carroll County Courthouse.
The event will give some previously convicted persons the ability to expungement their criminal records.
It is a fresh start. Tennessee Law provides a process to remove certain misdemeanor crimes and some low-level non-violent felonies from your record. The process is called expunction. Arrests that never led to convictions and dismissed charges are also eligible for expungement. Driver’s License Reinstatement Requirements will also be available upon request.
Requirements to request expungement include:
If you were convicted of or pled guilty to three or more crimes arising from separate criminal events, then you cannot have any conviction expunged.
All fines, court fees and restitution must be paid,
At least five (5) years have elapsed since the completion of the jail or probated sentence
The crime took place in Carroll County.
