On April 11, Michigan’s “Clean Slate” laws took effect, which created a process to expunge some offenses that are no longer crimes. The laws also increased the number of misdemeanor and felony convictions individuals can have expunged.
Learn more about expungement and read a 3-page Expungement Explainer by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office Conviction Integrity & Expungement Unit (CIEU) here.
Those unable to attend can email the CIEU at CIEU@washtenaw.org.
