SMBA Clean Slate "Expungement" Clinic


A new Missouri law will make it easier for some people to get their criminal records cleared.  The new law went into effect August 27, 2021, greatly expanding expungement eligibility in Missouri. Expungement is the legal procedure for people previously convicted of nonviolent, low-level offenses to seal the public record and get a fresh start. The new law reduces the waiting period which opens eligibility to thousands of people.

If you are wanting more information on how to keep up with the expungement process, you are invited to attend the “Clean Slate Clinic” sponsored by the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association on August 29, 2024.  Currently, the time is approximate.  The exact time and location will be updated at a later date.
