Expunging a juvenile's record

Every parent in Charlotte likely hopes that their children can look to the future and find it rife with opportunities. Those opportunities, however, can quickly become limited if a youth is convicted of a crime. A lack of experience and judgment can often lead kids and teens to do things that, given the greater degree of maturity that comes with age, they otherwise wouldn't. Indeed, information shared by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention shows that as recently as 2017, over 809,000 juvenile arrests were made in the U.S. That represents over 809,000 youths whose actions could place their future prospects for success in jeopardy.
