Free Forum Friday: Second Chance Act

← Back to Criminal Record Expunction

Ayana Robinson, Supervising Attorney of our Expunction Team, moderates this discussion about the Second Chance Act, a new state law that greatly expands expunction opportunities for North Carolinians. Joining Ayana are DJ Dore, Supervising Attorney in our Durham office, who focuses on expunction relief and driver’s license restoration, and Daniel Bowes, Director of the NC Justice Center’s Fair Chance Criminal Justice Project.

The discussion focuses on five provisions of the new law:

1. “Raise the Age”
2. Dismissals and acquittals
3. Three categories of expunctions of convictions: Single misdemeanor charges, multiple misdemeanor charges, and single felony convictions
4. Access to expunged files
5. Limited driving privileges
