What are the steps to get a felony expunged in North Carolina? 1 Answers as of January 13, 2011I was convicted of involuntary manslaughter from a car accident. There was evidence that would have helped me that was never turned in until the day of the plea agreement signing. Afterward the DA made a statement saying that if they had of allowed the evidence in then one of two things would have happened, a not guilty verdict or a hung jury. Would this make me eligible for an expungement?

Your case should have been appealed at the time if there was a problem with the evidence. If the time for that is past, there is no provision under North Carolina law for an expunction of a felony conviction. A felony conviction also keeps you from getting a misdemeanor not guilty or dismissal expunged.
