Q What records in the possession of a municipal police department and/or municipal court, if any, remain public record if the criminal charge is expunged under Section 99-19-71(4)?

A All records that are defined as public records under the public records act, Sections 25-61-1 et seq., are expunged and no longer open or available to the public in the event of a lawful expungement of a criminal conviction. There should be no record available to the public relating to the expunged charge. (Attorney General’s Opinion to Uselton, November 4, 2016)
