http://www.michie.com/tennessee/lpext.dll?f=templates&fn=main-h.htm&cp=tncode is the Tennessee statute on expungement. It is only allowed in very limited circucmstances.

You could apply for a pardon, see http://www.state.tn.us/bopp/bopp_bo_contents.htm and click the clemency process link.

http://law.findlaw.com/state-laws/criminal-statute-of-limitations/mississippi/ has the Mississippi criminal statutes of limitation. For most crimes, the indictment must issue within 2 years. Here is the statute: http://www.michie.com/mississippi/lpext.dll?f=templates&fn=main-h.htm&cp=mscode

I hope this information is helpful.
