Arrest Record Expungement

Minnesota allows expungement of arrest records if your arrest did not result in a conviction. Expungement will seal the records so that you can apply for employment without worrying if an employer will see a record of the arrest.

MN Diversion Program or Stay of Adjudication Case Expungement

If you were charged with possession of a controlled substance and completed a deferred prosecution program pursuant to Minnesota Statute section 152.18, other diversion, or stay of adjudication program you may be eligible to expunge your case after you are discharged and the proceedings are dismissed. The expungement will seal the arrest and court records so no one can see record of your case. If you did not receive diversion or did not complete it successfully, your case may still be eligible to be expunged under the provisions regarding expungement of convictions.

MN Conviction Expungement

In order to convince the court to expunge a conviction, you need to be able to show that you have made real changes in your life. You must show that you are a different person than the person you were at the time of the conviction. The court must be persuaded that is very unlikely that you will ever commit another crime.

Benefits of a Conviction Expungement

Under the current law, when the court grants an expungement of aconvictionin Minnesota, records are sealed but not destroyed. This is important to know, because law enforcement, prosecutors, or corrections authorities may still gain access to an expunged record. However, a public search of court records or BCA records for an expunged conviction will no longer appear. Although, when the court grants an expungement of aconvictionunder its inherent authority, records that are kept by some executive branch agencies, including the BCA (Bureau of Criminal Apprehension), might not be expunged and available to public view.

New Law Passed to Improve MN Expungment Law

A new law, HF 2576, was signed by Governor Mark Dayton in May of 2014, that recently went into effect January 1, 2015. Under HF 2576, certain convictions are eligible for a statutory expungement. With a statutory expungement, the benefits of the expungement are greatly expanded from what relief was available in previous years. The expungement applies to the records maintained by executive branch, including the BCA. If you were convicted, you must satisfy a waiting period that begins at the completion of your sentence. The waiting periods are: 2 years for misdemeanors and petty misdemeanors, four years for gross misdemeanors, and five years for felonies.

Success Rate for Conviction Expungements

Our law firm's overall success rate for Minnesota conviction expungement cases is about 50 percent. We are slightly more successful on misdemeanor cases and drug related felony cases. Our success rate on cases 10 years old or more is approximately 70 percent. Keep in mind that each case really is different and past results do not dictate future results. The more signs of rehabilitation (law-abiding behavior, change in circumstances and positive conduct) and more hardship (lost opportunities and unfair discrimination) caused by the record, the better the chances of success will be.

MN Expungement Process

The time it takes for a record to be expunged in Minnesota differs, but it usually takes about 6 to 9 months. We have helped over 500 people in Minnesota with their record clearing cases and we know how to have records cleared as quickly as possible. Once we get your case we begin working on it, most of the wait time depends on how busy the court is where your petition would be filed.

We have a flat fee for this service that covers all costs including filing fees. We will first gather information on your case and do any essential research. Once that is done we will compose your petition and any other needed documents. If there is any prosecutor opposition we will also respond to that. We also will have one of our attorneys go to court to zealously advocate for you. Most of the time we find that your presence in court will not be mandatory. If you want an update on your case you can call us or check our state of the art online case management system.
