In North Carolina, if the charge in question was dismissed, whether a misdemeanor or felony, the individual or the district attorney may petition the court of the county where the charge was brought for an order to expunge the record of the charge from all official records. If a person is charged with multiple offenses and any charges are dismissed, then that person may petition to have each of the dismissed charges expunged. If the court finds that all of the charges were dismissed, the court shall order the expunction. If the court finds that any of the charges resulted in a conviction or did not reach a final disposition, the court may order the expunction of any charge that was dismissed.
