When someone is charged with a criminal offense, whether the individual is found guilty or the charges are dismissed, a record of that charge exists in the person’s criminal record. Such charges can show up during background checks for employment, housing, and other matters. Expunction of a criminal charge is the act of clearing the record of the charge from a person’s criminal record. As such, the charge does not show up when a potential employer or landlord checks the individual’s criminal record. In North Carolina, whether a charge is eligible for expungement depends on whether it was dismissed, or the individual was found guilty, whether the charge is a felony or misdemeanor, and whether the charge was a “violent” felony or misdemeanor.
