    Default How to Expunge Felony Arrests That Did Not result in Conviction

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: North Carolina

    Sorry to ask such a basic question, but Googling isn't helping me do anything but find attorney ads.

    Basically I was arrested and charged with some felony offenses in NC in 2008, Larceny and Intimidating a Witness, but I was not ultimately convicted. I've lived clean as a whistle ever since, but these things obviously still come up on background checks even though they're just arrests. I have read that some states take 15 years before even arrests can be removed, but can't seem to find specifics on North Carolina.

    Were you convicted of anything prior to the felony arrest?

    Nothing besides minor traffic infractions.

    There's no waiting period. NCGS 15A-146. You apply to the court in the county where the charges were brought. They will hold a hearing. You probably want to get a lawyer for this. While this link is specific to Wake County, it gives you an idea of what you need: http://www.nccourts.org/County/Wake/Staff/Clerk.asp
