New Expungement Law: As of July 1, 2012 certain felony and misdemeanors can be erased

Effective July 1, 2012 Tennessee law, Tenn. Code Ann. 40-32-101, allows expungements for certain misdemeanor and felony convictions. To be eligible you can not have any convictions (plead or found guilty) to any offense other than the first and only conviction; the possible or actual sentence of jail time was not over 3 years; and 5 years have passed since the completion date all of the punishments and obligations. Punishments and obligations being fines, court costs, restitution, jail time, probation, supervised/unsupervised release, etc. Lastly, there is a $450 fee that would have to be paid to the Court as well.

If you think you meet these requirements I would be glad to make a clean record happen for you. Check out the following page for more information http://michaelwalkerattorney.com/divorcecriminallaw.html.

 Give me a call and we can go over the details to get the process started. Call 615-485-3065 to get the background check process started.

my brother is serving time after taking a plea for a crime he didn't commit. his lawyer pressured him saying if he didn't he would lose in a trial. he is looking to get a conviction relief due to incompetence of counsel. would you consider his case. and also i am looking for more information on the expungement rules, he is a first time offender and it is a felony rape (alleged digital)

This is a blog. Please call me to discuss your brother's case. Unfortunately, he will not be eligible for an expungement with a conviction of that charge.
