Can I Get a Criminal Charge Off My Record?

We are often asked “can I get a criminal conviction off my record?” This question comes from a wide range of people, from people who are merely charged with a crime to people who have an old conviction from several years ago.

There are multiple ways to work towards getting a criminal conviction or criminal charge off your record. I will cover the three most common ways.

Dismissal / Order of Retirement
After being charged with a crime, the State may agree to either dismiss or retire your criminal charge. If the State offers such an agreement, then the matter will be dismissed, either immediately (if a dismissal) or after a passage of time (if a retirement). For a thorough discussion of the difference between these two, give this post a read.

Judicial Diversion
Another agreement that the State may propose is for you to plead guilty to a criminal charge under judicial diversion. Every adult is eligible to use judicial diversion one time in their adult life. Under judicial diversion, you plead guilty and enter a probation period, but, if you successfully complete your probation period, you may pay a fee and have the charge erased from your record once your probation period is over.

Tennessee Expungement Law
The last way that criminal charges or criminal convictions are often removed from records is through the Tennessee Expungement Law, T.C.A. § 40-32-101(g). Under the Tennessee Expungement Law, certain eligible offenses may be erased from your criminal record, subject to strict conditions. The conviction to be removed must be an eligible conviction and it must be the only conviction (or multiple convictions, if entered at the same time) on your record.

If you have criminal charges and are interested in having them removed from your record, schedule a consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney so that your future is best protected.

Need a Bonnaroo Lawyer? We Can Help.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is one of the most iconic music festivals on the planet. Every year, tens of thousands of people cross the globe and descend upon Middle Tennessee to watch performers from Cardi B to The Lumineers perform on the main stages.

One inevitable thing, beyond iconic performances, is numerous Bonnaroo Drug Charges.

The Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, and many other law enforcement agencies will be on the lookout for any suspicious activity that could justify a stop and search of your vehicle or person. If they find any illegal drugs, the local courts will prosecute you for charges ranging from simple possession and possession of drug paraphernalia to more serious offenses like felony drug possession.

Many of the festival-goers are from out-of-state and do not know local laws, the court systems, or how to resolve charges quickly and reach the right result. That is why local representation matters using an Experienced Bonnaroo Lawyer who knows local courts, local rules, and the local district attorneys and court staff.

If you have been arrested or cited at Bonnaroo, you need a Bonnaroo Lawyer who will fight for you.

With serious risks involved with Bonnaroo Drug Charges like these, it is critically important to have an ally on your side that has a wealth of legal expertise as well as experience in the local courts. The Law Office of W. Scott Kimberly has years of experience defending drug and alcohol charges and is eager to get to work for you. We are Bonnaroo Lawyers and we are here to help.
