New Law Helps Clear Criminal Records

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK)–Governor Roy Cooper has signed Senate Bill 445.  If a person was charged and there was no conviction, or if a person is a first-time offender of a non-violent crime, then the law will give the individual easier access to get their criminal records expunged. Lawmakers and advocates are also celebrating another victory — raising the minimum age of prosecution from 16 to 18 for non-violent offenses.  The law will go into effect Dec. 1.
