Missouri changed the expungement laws on January 1, 2018, when Missouri statute §610.140 became effective. The statute was later amended in August 2019. This statute allowed for the expungement (removal) of a large number of offenses from the criminal record of a person (felonies, misdemeanors, and infractions) that were previously ineligible for expungement. However, those who are looking to have an old conviction in Missouri expunged should consult with an attorney at the earliest opportunity. The statute is complicated, and an evaluation process is necessary to determine whether a person is eligible.
