How Certain Crimes Can Be Expunged From Public Records

Only certain crimes are eligible under the new law. The crimes must be non-violent, non-DUI and non-sexual and they must be misdemeanors or Class E felonies committed in Tennessee after November first of 1989. Forgery, theft and vandalism would be forgotten if the crimes were less than 1-thousand dollars. The person applying to have their record expunged must also have no convictions other than the one theyíre trying to wipe from their record. The person must have completed all the terms of their sentencing, paid all fines and remained free of alcohol or substance abuse for at least one year. At least five years must have elapsed from the completion of the personís sentence. All rules will be posted on the Sullivan County District Attorney Generalís website. (bg)
