The Clean Slate Bill
The Michigan Legislature has passed, and the governor has signed, a law designed to assist Michigan residents with criminal convictions in their past obtain jobs, find housing, and move on with their lives. The law, known as “Clean Slate,” makes it easier for Michiganders to wipe convictions from their record. The law, which enjoyed bipartisan support, is aimed at ending a cycle of crime within communities and increasing public safety by allowing access to employment.
The new law allows expungement, as the process of removal of convictions is known, as early as three years in some cases, and up to seven years in others. It makes it easier to remove multiple offenses and increases the number of offenses eligible for expungement.
