Expunction of Record of Conviction - T.C.A. 40-32-101(g)
On July 1, 2012, a new law goes into effect that allows Tennessee residents convicted of certain crimes to be able to have that incident expunged from their records, pursuant to T.C.A. 40-32-101(g).
Only certain crimes are eligible for expunction; they must be non-violent, non-DUI and non-sexual crimes. Crimes eligible are most misdemeanors and some Class E felonies, including forgery, theft, vandalism, and fraudulent or false insurance claim, among others.
