Misdemeanor Expunction

In general, Mississippi law allows expunction for first-time misdemeanor convictions and arrests for charges that were ultimately dropped or dismissed. Expungement for DUI convictions and drug possession convictions for minors are also available under certain circumstances.

The expunction of a first-time misdemeanor offense is permissible under the following circumstances:

  • Serving notice to the prosecuting attorney
  • Rehabilitation
  • Two (2) years of good conduct following the last conviction
  • If the society’s best interests would be served

Felony Expunction

Mississippi law allows expunction for certain felony convictions within five (5) years of completing all terms and condition of the sentence. If the offender was under the age of twenty-one (21) when the felonies were committed, subsequent convictions after the first offense could be expunged.

Felonies that can be expunged include:

  • A bad check offense;
  • Possession of a controlled substance or paraphernalia;
  • Obtaining signature, money or valuables with fraudulent intent;
  • Larceny;
  • Malicious mischief; or
  • Shoplifting.
