The criminal trial lawyers at Newmark Storms have extensive experience handling expungements throughout the Twin Cities and all of Minnesota. As of May 2014, new Minnesota legislation greatly expanded individuals’ ability to achieve an expungement for prior convictions or a stay of imposition (“stay”). The new law allows some of those convicted of misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors, and some low-level felonies to get their criminal records sealed. The new legislation becomes effective January 1, 2015, but it is important to get a jump start on any expungement case processing.

Five additional categories of convictions were added to the types of crimes eligible for expungements:

There are new provisions for allowing criminal DWI convictions to be expunged. The attorneys at Newmark Storms have the ability and expertise to expunge criminal records relating to drunk-driving offenses.

The new law passed in 2014 expands the circumstances in which clients qualify for expungement of felony convictions. The lawyers at Newmark Storms Law Office can move to expunge felony verdicts for offenses such as assault, drugs, embezzlement, receiving stolen goods, theft, and more.

Gross Misdemeanors
Unlike prior to the new bill passed in 2014, gross misdemeanor offenses have new rules surrounding expungements four years following the end of the sentence.

Misdemeanors and Petty Misdemeanors
The rules around the expungement of misdemeanor and petty misdemeanor offenses were greatly expanded recently. The Newmark Storms criminal defense attorneys can expunge driving violations, disorderly conduct, and other similarly nuisance convictions.

Records Held by Private Companies and Websites
Since the new bill passed in 2014, private business screening entities who obtain criminal backgrounds are required to delete records that have been expunged. The lawyers at Newmark Storms Law Office, LLC can petition such agencies to ensure your records are delete for clean background checks.
