North Carolina Law makes this information public. The Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office provides it via the internet for your convenience.

Be careful not to confuse criminal charges with criminal convictions. Many people are charged with crime(s) without being convicted; however, the arrest record is still active and public record. As well, the civil inquiry lists all civil process filed with the Clerk of Court but does not reflect case disposition. For more information about a particular case, visit the Clerk of Court's Office at 832 E. 4th Street, Charlotte, NC.


Arrest and inmate inquiry information will remain online for three years from the date of arrest or release from jail. To remove the information prior to three years, the Sheriff’s Office must receive an Order of Expunction signed by a judge. For more information about having charges expunged, please contact your attorney.
