Anyone who has had a criminal charge dismissed with no costs has a right to have his or her name cleared and records expunged, Nashville attorney Daniel Horwitz tells WMC Action News 5. To help them achieve that, Horwitz has filed a class-action motion to expunge records for more than 128,000 Davidson County residents who are currently eligible for expungement but have not gone through the process. “In a lot of cases, people assume wrongly that their dismissed offenses have been expunged automatically when they haven’t,” Horwitz says.
