The Second Chance Act was signed by Governor Cooper and is now in effect. The new law allows many North Carolinians to remove old criminal convictions.

Governor Cooper signed the Second Chance Act. This new change to North Carolina expungement law will allow thousands to erase older non-violent convictions from their record.

The new law change does a number of things but has two provisions that are especially important.

Help for those with multiple convictions. New Rules to allow people who have multiple non-violent criminal convictions to get an expungement. Before, if you had multiple convictions (convictions on different dates of court) you could not get an expungement. Now people with more than one non-violent conviction may have the ability to get an expungement.

Help for those with convictions under the age of 18. New rules to allow most misdemeanor and low level felony convictions to be erased for those who were 16 or 17 at the time of arrest. This allows most convictions to be erased if they happened when the person was under the age of 18.

Help for those with dismissed cases or not guilty verdicts on their record. There are new rules that increase the pool of those who are eligible to have dismissed and not guilty verdicts removed from their records. Even if your case was dismissed a record will stay forever unless erased through the NC expungement process.
