Can I expunge more than one crime in Michigan? 5 Answers as of August 31, 2011

I have a few non violent cases that are old. I only plead guilty because I was a dumb kid with no money for a lawyer. I would like to know if there is any way I can get rid of at least some of them.

Sorry. In Michigan you can only have one conviction of any kind on your record to be eligible for an expungement.

The short answer is: No. In Michigan, you can get an expungement if you have only one conviction for a misdemeanor or felony. (non-traffic, and non serious). You can seek expungement after 5 years. A Petition is filed with the Court where the conviction occurred, and it is in the discretion of the Judge. Where you have more than one conviction, no expungement is available.

There are ways to do what you want, but it is difficult.

No. However, pending legislation will change that.
