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 or probation, 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.
According to an April 26, 2023, article in the Detroit News by Beth LeBlanc, automatic expungement does not result in federal firearms rights restoration.
