Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Was your granddaughter convicted of the misdemeanor offense?
Ok. Thanks. Traffic offenses cannot be expunged under SC law.
As for the bomb making offense, it would only be eligible if whatever she was charged with/convicted of carried a penalty of no more than 30 days imprisonment or a $500 fine, or both. If the penalty is higher, the conviction is not eligible for expungement.
Here's a good link you can read regarding this matter: http://www.judicial.state.sc.us/selfHelp/FAQExpungementPardon.pdf
If she is not eligible, the only real option would be for her to apply for a pardon from the governor. The above link provides the procedure for that as well; but, receiving a pardon is much more difficult to obtain.
Thanks for your question and please let me know if you need anything further. Thanks!
