Question: Recently I requested public court records from Loudoun County, VA General District Court - these records were from a misdemeanor criminal case from 1995. The Clerk of the Court of Loudoun County wrote to me: that per Code ofVA 16.2-69.57, records more than 10 yrs old are expunged. I looked the Code up and it should be 16.1 not/not 16.2 AND they stated that per Title 37.2 civil records more than 10 years old are purged. Is this true? by purged does the Court mean that they are destroyed and no longer can be accessed?
