Mississippi’s expungement law, Section 99-19-71 in the Mississippi Code, allows for most types of felonies to be expunged, but with the following circumstances:
1) Must be a non-violent crime. Sexual crimes, Embezzlement convictions, and Felony DUI's are excluded from expungement.
2) Five years must have passed since the completion of all the terms and conditions of their sentence or probation.
If you meet these requirements, then we can promptly petition the court wherein you were convicted to have all evidence of your felony record removed from all databases!
Misdemeanors, even though they are lesser crimes than felonies, will still show up on your permanent record and may keep or hinder you throughout your future.
Fortunately, if you were convicted of any misdemeanor in Mississippi, and it was your first offense, you likely qualify to have that incident removed entirely from your record.*
* Traffic citations do not apply.
Current Mississippi Law now allows for the complete removal of certain DUI first offenses. However, certain criteria must be met:
1 - FIVE years must have passed since you successfully completed all terms and conditions of your first offense DUI.
2 - You were not a holder of a commercial driver’s license or commercial learning permit.
3 - You did not refuse to submit a blood or breath test.
4 - Your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tested below .16% if test results are available.
5 - You do not have any other DUI offense on your record or have another one pending.
6 - You can provide the court with a reason why your DUI should be expunged.
If you meet these criteria, then we can promptly apply to have all records of your DUI removed from your permanent record!
If you were arrested and the case was either dismissed, the charges were dropped, or there was no disposition, we can petition the court wherein you were arrested to have all records of that incident taken off your permanent record.
