Expungement gains popularity in NC

Posted on July 20th, 2011 No Comments

Statistics show a significant rise in the number of people seeking expungements in North Carolina.

Since 2000, the number of expungements granted in North Carolina has almost tripled.  Last year, a total of 11,519 charges were erased through expungement in the state.  Only 4,295 cases of expungement were allowed in 2000.

From 2000 to 2010, a total of more than 76,000 people received expungements in North Carolina alone.

Expungement allows an individual to have criminal charges removed from their record.  Having a clean slate after an expungement has been shown to dramatically increase one’s chances of getting hired for a new job.  Furthermore, with today’s wide access to the internet, expungement has been found to be more important than ever.
