Do You Qualify To Have Your Past Record Expunged?
Expungement of past records in Mississippi is complex. Is there hope to clear your record after you have a conviction on the books in Mississippi? In some cases, the answer is yes. These cases are relatively few and far between, but it is worthwhile to explore your options. Opportunities for expunging records may depend on timing and the type of conviction on your record:
- Generally, a felony conviction must be at least five years in the past before expungement is a possibility. The felony must have been relatively minor.
- One misdemeanor expungement may be obtained in a lifetime. The time elapsed between the conviction and the expungement may vary according to the nature of the offense and the judge’s perception.
