Expungement Laws in Review

Print Friendly

There is currently a state of Minnesota House/Senate “working group” that is meeting periodically to try come up with modifications to the existing laws on expungement (sealing of criminal records)  in Minnesota. The hope is that they can draft changes to the current law to allow expungements for more criminal matters including juvenile cases. The Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (MACDL) is assisting this “working group” of legislatures along with the Minnesota Council on Crime in Justice in drafting this potential legislation.

I am a member of the MACDL legislative subcommittee and will be assisting in this endeavor. I will periodically be blogging on the status of this legislation in the upcoming session of the MN legislature so look for my blogs. I also encourage you to follow this legislature in the news as it progresses through the session.

We here at BGS are set up to assist anyone who wants to pursue an expungement of their criminal record,  please contact us with inquiries regarding this legal issue.
