Felony Record Expungement

A conviction or stayed sentence for a felony is expungeable in Minnesota's second chance law, as long as you have not been convicted of a new crime for at least five years since discharge of the sentence for the crime. Some of the felonies listed as eligible for expungement under the new law are:

  • Certain felony theft offenses
  • Receiving stolen goods
  • Dishonored check over $500
  • Criminal damage to property
  • Financial transaction card fraud
  • Computer theft
  • Certain forgery offenses

Undertaking the felony expungement process properly, however, requires a comprehensive knowledge of the process; failure to properly address all issues means that certain executive branch agencies may not seal the record and the effects of expungement will be limited if not nullified altogether.

With more than three decades of experience, our Minneapolis lawyers at Arneson & Geffen PLLC are prepared to bring the approach that has helped thousands of clients in these and related criminal defense issues to help you resolve any expungement case in the best possible way.
