If you have been charged with misdemeanor larceny or shoplifting, and it’s your first criminal charge, you may be eligible for the First Offender Program in Wake County. Upon successful completion of the program your case would be dismissed, and then may be able to be expunged from your record completely. If your case is expunged, it will not show on any background check that you had ever been charged in the first place.
The Wake County First Offender Program for misdemeanor charges generally will require you to complete 75 hours of community service at a non-profit organization and not be arrested again for one year. Attorneys Wiley Nickel and Kristi Haddock can help you navigate Wake County District Court to make the process less stressful. The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel will assist you to make sure you find a non-profit that is eligible for the program so you can successfully complete it. We will also advise you on any other requirements the Wake County District Attorney would like you to complete in order to have your charge dismissed. Additionally, we may be able to help you get the charge expunged after dismissal.
