James Cummings discusses the expungement process

Hi! It's James Cummings with the law firm of Cummings & Cummings, and I want to talk to you today about the status of your criminal record. All the time when I represent the defendants and we're able to get a charge dismissed they ask me, "Is this charge still on my record?" The answer to that question is invariable. Yes, it's on your record. It may be on your record that the charge has been dismissed, but it's still there that it occurred. The only way to make something go away completely is the process known as an expungement. Under Chapter 15-A, Section 146, "You may be entitled to have whatever it was that was dismissed removed from your record." Give us a call at Cummings & Cummings today. The initial consultation, it's always free and confidential and we can tell you whether or not you're eligible for an expungement and whether or not we can clean up your criminal record entirely.
