Expungement of Arrest Record

As a defendant, there are situations which you are entitled to have all records relating to an arrest or conviction expunged and destroyed. The situations are as follows:

  • If your criminal case is dismissed, nolle prossed or has a not guilty verdict the court will proceed to an automatic expungement at no cost.

  • If you participate in the Pre-trial Intervention Program and your case is dismissed upon completion, you may file for an expungement with the Beaufort County Solicitor's Office.

  • For a first offense conviction in the Municipal Court or Magistrate's, with no further convictions in a three to five year period, you may be eligible for an expungement of your record, based on the charge. You must file with the Beaufort County Solicitor's Office.
