Laws, Rules & Resources on Criminal Expungement

If you are representing yourself in a criminal expungement case in Minnesota, you are responsible for following the same laws and rules as an attorney. Read Rights and Duties of Self-Represented Parties.

Laws & Rules on Criminal Expungement

The following is a list of some of the laws and rules that deal with criminal expungement in Minnesota. See also Laws, Rules & Legal Research.

If you were arrested but not charged with a crime, there will not be a court record for that event. Law enforcement agencies and the BCA, however, may have records of the arrest.  There is a non-court process for sealing arrest records. See Expunge Arrest Records for more details. 

You can get more help with your legal research at your local law library. Talk with a lawyer if you want to know how the laws and rules may affect your case.
