Has the Law Changed?

Changes in Missouri’s expungement law are continually happening and may make you become eligible to have your record expunged!

Date of the latest change in the law:  August 2021

Effect of the changes:

  1.  New Offenses Now Eligible for Expungement
    • Unlawful use of a weapon – Concealed carry (if found guilty before 2017)
    • Unlawful use of a weapon – Exhibiting
  2.  Clean Waiting Period Shortened
    • For eligible felonies, the waiting period is now 3 years (down from 7 years)
    • For eligible misdemeanors, the clean waiting period is now 1 year (down from 3 years).
