In South Carolina, it is possible to expunge criminal records. Expungement is permitted for a range of minor violations, first offenses, and charges that did not result in convictions. Serious crime convictions, however, do not have many options. When a record is expunged, the records themselves are destroyed, making it as if the offense never happened. Job applicants can then legitimately answer “no” on applications in regards to criminal convictions, as the expunged information would not show up in a background check or licensing investigation.
