How to Expunge a Criminal Record in Detroit

Having a criminal record can make it difficult to get hired, remain employed, stay in school, receive scholarships, obtain loans, and more. Oftentimes, a criminal record is the worst part of a sentence after conviction, because of the long lasting effects a person can face as a result. Fortunately, with Grabel & Associates, you can fight a long lasting record and potentially clear your name in some situations. If your past offense is eligible for expungment, you can file a motion to set aside conviction. Our attorneys know how to properly file necessary motions and represent you throughout expungement proceedings, and only by working with an experienced attorney can you ensure the best chance at clearing your record.

If you plead guilty or nolo contendre, or if you were found guilty of a crime, it is extremely likely that you have a criminal record. Contact us now for a free consultation and find out more about when you can begin your fight to clear your record and what you need to do to regain your freedom.

Offenses That Can Be Expunged in Michigan

There are a few offenses which can never be cleared from your record, including Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree, traffic violations, or any felony charge which carried a maximum possible sentence of life in prison. Other offenses, however, can be expunged in many cases, and sometimes even multiple offenses can be cleared. A recent change to Michigan law allows for those with one felony and two misdemeanors on their record to have their felony expunged. Additionally,  those with only two misdemeanors on their record are eligible to have either or both misdemeanors expunged. A record can be expunged only after a 5 year waiting period. Grabel & Associates will help you fight back against long lasting criminal penalties and we will do all we can to help you earn back your freedom as soon as possible.
