If you have been convicted of a crime in North Mississippi, it is important to understand the lasting impact on your life. You may not be able secure employment or housing and even vote in certain elections because employers consider criminal records when deciding who they want as employees while colleges look at them during admissions processes. Federal loans can also get denied due solely to past convictions. There are many more things that could happen such as being unable ever to ever own property again, receiving a loan, leasing an apartment, holding a professional license, voting, and even purchasing a firearm.
Expunging records in Mississippi is not only possible but it can be done for certain crimes. First, all you need to know is that there are many different ways charges get dismissed or resolved through pretrial diversion so an arrest record will always have this option available if the individual was arrested without being convicted of anything—this includes cases where the police officers involved recommended against taking any action at all!
The records of your conviction may be expunged if certain conditions are met. However, you will need to retain an attorney who can prepare the petition and obtain an Order from the court for this purpose; automatic expungements do not exist!
Have you been charged with a crime and are looking to have it expunged? You’re not alone.

Expungement of Arrest but no Conviction (Miss. Code Ann. § 99-15-123 (3))
The expungement process can help people who have been arrested but not convicted. Even if charges are dismissed or an individual is found “not guilty” at trial, there will still be a record of their arrest which could make prospects for jobs and schools throughout life as well- so it’s important to know about this law before getting philosophical later down the line.
When a police officer makes an arrest, they prepare a written record of it and kept in the records division. The information will then be sent to NCIC or the FBI for further background checks on each suspect before releasing any details about them publicly because this could help determine if there are other crimes committed by individuals with similar names living in other states that might not yet be aware of their presence here too. The goal was to provide more insight into how law enforcement agencies capture data during criminal.
Expungement of Misdemeanor Arrest and Conviction (§ 99-19 71)
Mississippi law allows anyone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor, except for traffic violations and could be eligible to have their record sealed or expunged depending on the circumstances. There is no requirement under Section 99-19 -71 that these individuals must wait 10 years before applying; they can submit applications at any time during whose term will depend upon how serious your particular case may seem like without being too specific about what happened for example: if you were caught shoplifting but never spent any time behind bars then there would probably only need one conviction recorded rather than two.
