Americans have a criminal record
If you have a criminal record, you may have been arrested but never charged, never prosecuted, or found guilty. Still, the incident could be preventing you from achieving your goals. This problem disproportionately plagues minority communities.
Expungement is not DIY-friendly, and private legal help is expensive. ExpungeMississippi.com was created to assist with information on expungements in Mississippi.
Our ExpungeMississippi website is for people who are handling their legal problems without a lawyer or who are seeking more information on expungements before contacting a lawyer.
This website does not give legal advice and it is not a substitute for having a lawyer. If you need more help you can Hire a Lawyer or contact a legal services provider.
An expungement is the process used to erase a criminal record; it is a way to restore a person to the legal status they were in before the incident that generated the record.

A person is eligible for only one (1) felony expungement unless all of the convictions arose from the same facts or occurrence (as determined by the court).
The following felonies may not be expunged:
