Visit with Springfield-area lawyers about criminal expungements

Joe Hickman KY3

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - There’s been a lot of talk about “expungements” lately because the new Constitutional Amendment that permits recreational marijuana use also has a provision for wiping clean the criminal records of many people who were busted for pot-related offenses.

All marijuana misdemeanor offenses were supposed to be expunged by June 8, and the deadline for felony expungements is coming up in December.

By and large, those deadlines are not being met because county clerks all across the state don’t have the staff or the time to get the painstaking work done.

But those wanting more information on how to keep up with their expungement progress (or lack thereof) are invited to attend a “Clean Slate Clinic” sponsored by the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association and the Legal Services of Southern Missouri on Tuesday, June 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the National Avenue Christian Church.

It’s free to attend, but you do need to register before the meeting at SMBA
