New Law Change for Expungements of Felonies and Misdemeanors committed under the age of 18: If you were convicted of a felony or misdemeanor under the age of 18 then you may be eligible to have your record Expunged. The law was changed in June of 2020 as part of the Second Chance Act to allow almost all felony and misdemeanors to be erased through the North Carolina expungement process. Those who were 16 or 17 and convicted with a date of offense prior to December 1, 2019 are eligible for an expungement of all misdemeanors and H or I felony convictions with some minor exceptions (DWI/Driving related conviction and sex offender registry convictions). Expungements Under 15A-145.8 were included as a response to the Raise the Age legislation that finally allowed NC to join the rest of the country in treating 16 and 17 year olds as juveniles. https://wileynickel.com/raleigh-defense-lawyer-blog/expungements-under-age-of-18
