    The expunging of criminal records. Fact or fantasy?

    Here is an interesting inquiry that we received in on Friday last week from a client who we advised accordingly.

    “I completed my tertiary education at the end of 2017 and I have been looking for employment since January 2018. I just can’t get work, mainly, I think, because I have a criminal record. The criminal record stems from a case of shoplifting that I committed in 2007 and to which charge I pleaded guilty and for which I received an R500 fine without any suspended sentence attached. Can my criminal record be removed?”

    “Yes, it can” is the short answer to your question.
