The launch comes in response to recent changes to drug laws in the state of Michigan and the decriminalization of some substances. Prior misdemeanor convictions for now decriminalized substances could be available for expungement.
Misdemeanor convictions for minor crimes can follow the convicted around. These small crimes appear in background checks and can prevent someone from choosing where they work. One might be prevented from working around money or protective services. The ability to secure loans and financing can be severely affected by misdemeanors appearing on background checks.
Fran Murphy Law is familiar with navigating the expungement process and advises clients about the latest updates about their cases. The team highlighted the announcement that the expungement of misdemeanor marijuana convictions could be filed beginning on the 11th of April, 2021, with the ability to set aside first-time operating while impaired offenses began on the 19th of February, 2022. Automatic expungement law is not expected to be applicable before 2023.
Expungement attained through the services of Fran Murphy Law removes the crime from the record of the convicted. The misdemeanor will be “set aside” such that it does not appear in background checks and is erased on the public record.
Expungements are only available for certain minor crimes and several factors and conditions must be met to qualify. There have been many changes to the expungement laws in recent years, as well as changes to criminal laws. New expungements are continuing to be updated and released.
