Felony charges cannot be dropped off of your record. * Charges yes, convictions no.

They will remain on your record for life. Even having them expunged doesn't remove them from your record - it just limits who can see them on your record.

More information is needed. "Dropped" how? By who? The judge or the prosecutor? Was it Nolle Prossed or was it dismissed? If it was dismissed, was it WITH prejudice or WITHOUT prejudice?

If you're convicted of a felony, it will remain on your record for life.Added: Quoted from the NH expungement law: "A person convicted of a violent crime, of any crime of obstruction of justice, or of any offense for which the petitioner was sentenced to an extended term of imprisonment is not eligible for annulment."

Whether or not a felony charge can be removed from the record of a minor is up to a judge. Most judges can close records, but the charge will remain.

No. You could be named as a suspect in a felony crime and still be at large - BUT - if you were charged with a felony you would be taken into custody - booked - arraigned and officially notified of the charges against you. Then, you could be released - on bond or recognizance, if eligible.

It is called an exopungement and you would have to check with CA court system to see if you qualify. (note: If it is a FEDERAL felony offense - forget it - there is no method to clear federal felony records.)

If you are trying to get into the military some small petty crimes can be waived...it also depends on what branch you are trying to join. But the answer to your question is def. no. You can not join the military when theres a felony on your record.

Go to your local law enforcement agency and request a copy of your own criminal record. There should only be a small administrative charge (if any) for doing so.

seems like after 7 years i think they expunge your record of minor crimes. also, you can pay to have this taken off your record i believe. Corrections: North Carolina only does expungements for the following cases: If you where found NOT GUILTY. If you where under the age of 18, and it was a drug offence. Now North Carolina says that if you where found to not have moral turpitude due to your felony conviction, they say no. The best advice that can be told in this situation, is to make sure you have taken the PRAXIS, and be completely honest on your application. If you answer no on the application, they do a background check, and they find the felony, that in itself is another felony charge. Best of luck.

Only if you are convicted of a felony.

The only thing that will remove a felony arrest and/or conviction from your record is to have your record expunged. You must submit a petition/motion to the court system in which you were convicted, stating your reason(s) and giving good reason(s) why the record should be expunged. If you were convicted and are currently serving the sentence you cannot do this until after your sentence is completed. Expungement will only remove the record of your arrest and conviction from the the PUBLIC record, only law enforcement will have access to that portion of your ciminal history. Expungement IS NOT A PARDON, you will still be a convicted felon and you will not get your "rights" restored.

Not knowing which state the incident occurred in, a specific answer is not possible. Some potential charges could be, obstruction of justice charges to be filed or making a false police report. What would determine the type of charges and penalties that might be sought, is the action that was taken regarding the incident. For example, were any verbal or written statements made where the accuser was under oath?

Florida does provide for the expungement of criminal records but there are some criteria that must be met and usually only one offense per your lifetime can be expunged. See below link:

You can get an assault charge taken off of your record by petitioning the court to have the charge expunged. Plea your case in front of a judge. There are no guarantees that it will be taken off of your record.

Yes. A felony conviction can result in the revocation of the person's immigration status and deportation to the convicted person's country of origin.

If you were taken into custody with the intent to be interrogated then yes, the charges could be dropped.
