Looking to clean up your criminal record?

An expungement could be the thing for you. Mississippi law provides various provisions for the expungement of criminal charges and convictions and the attorneys at Coxwell & Associates have years of experience in obtaining this relief for our clients.

The effect of an expungement of either a criminal charge or conviction is that all records of that charge and/or conviction are removed from criminal databases. Mug shots, arrest reports, booking information and any other information related to the charge are no longer in existence. In addition, the legal effect of an expungement is that, once completed, you are legally able to state that you have not ever been charge and/or convicted of certain crimes.

In Mississippi, if you are charged with either a felony or misdemeanor and that charge is subsequently dismissed, you are, by law, entitled to have that charge, and all information related to it, expunged from your record. Most misdemeanor convictions can be expunged and, in certain situations, felony convictions can be as well.

If you are looking to clean up your criminal record, contact the attorneys at Coxwell & Associates to advise you and guide you through this process.
