Tennessee Legislature expands expungement eligibility

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 No Comments

A new law passed by the Tennessee Legislature that went into effect yesterday increases the kinds of offenses that can qualify for expungement in that state.

The Tennessee law includes a list of 28 felonies and 45 misdemeanors that will now be expungeable. It adds some requirements to be eligible for the expungement, but an experienced expunction attorney can help you understand whether you meet those qualifications or not.

Expungement can help you have a fresh start by removing past criminal offenses from your record. This can help you avoid the consequences that may come with a criminal record, such as inability to apply for certain jobs.

There are numerous reasons why you need expungement after being convicted of a crime. To learn more about how expungement can help you, contact the expungement attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-845-7007.
