Do you have a non-violent felony or up to two misdemeanors you’d like to have expunged or removed from your record?
On Monday, January 12th, 2015 Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill into law, House Bill 4186, or the Second-Chance Bill that drastically expands the list of those who are eligible to apply to have certain felonies and up to two misdemeanors expunged from their record.
Drunk Driving Expungement
On August 23, 2021, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed House Bills 4219 and 4220, which will allow anyone with a drunk driving conviction to get it expunged.
The law will go into effect February 23, 2022.
The following offenses will be eligible for expungment:
- Driving with a blood alcohol content at, or above 0.08
- Driving while visibly impaired due to any substance
- Driving under the age of 21 with a blood alcohol cotent of 0.02 or higher
- Driving under the influence of any amount of cocaine or other schedule 1 controlled substances
In order to qualify you have to be off of probation for 5 years.
Offenses That Cannot Be Expunged
Unfortunately the following are not expungement- eligible:
- Capital Offenses
- Certain Domestic Violence Felonies
- Criminal Sexual Conducts (CSC) Convictions- Except Certain CSC 4th
