    Default Getting a Misdemeanor Expunged

    My question involves expungements or pardons for the state of: North Carolina.

    I was convicted of misdemeanor employee theft. It was originally a felony due to what was stolen, but it was later lowered to a misdemeanor once the restitution had been paid. I was 18 when it happened and it was my first charge, but it's hindering me from getting apartments and jobs so that I can move on with my life. I want to get an expungement, but I don't know how to go about it and I don't know if I'm eligible. A synopsis of the charge:

    Date of conviction: October 2010
    Sentence: 18 months supervised probation, 24 hours community service, pay restitution
    Fees and so on: $1,000+ restitution (paid off already), $2,000 lawyer fees (paid off already), $600+ probation and court fees (paid off already), completed community service

    Call up the county courthouse in which you were convicted and ask. Each county seems to have slightly different procedures for how they want to handle the motion

    However, I'm not sure you are eligible. The only time convictions seem to be expungeable is if you were under 18 or for certain drug/alcohol convictions for those under 21.
