Automatic Expungement Definition

Automatic expungement is when a felony or misdemeanor is automatically removed from someone’s criminal history pursuant to Michigan’s Clean Slate legislation. Up to two (2) felony convictions will automatically be expunged 10 years after sentencing or the person’s release from custody, whichever is later. Up to 4 misdemeanors will automatically be cleared off a person’s criminal history seven (7) years after sentencing. Many crimes are not eligible for automatic expungement.
