Ineligible for an Expungement, now what?
Simply because you are ineligible for an expungement, doesn’t mean something can’t be done to correct or clear your criminal record. Our attorneys have tackled many seemingly impossible problems with creative solutions using various court rules, deferrals programs mandated by Michigan Law, and public policy arguments.
Recently one of our attorneys was able to bring a Motion for Relief from Judgment & to Correct a Mistake in Macomb Circuit Court, concerning a ten (10) year old attempted B & E of a Motor Vehicle Felony conviction, where an expungement was not possible due to a misdemeanor conviction arising out of the same occurrence. The Judge granting our client’s request to be resentenced pursuant/under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA), a conviction deferral program which acts like an expungement, the Judge ruling "nunc pro tunc" meaning to retroactively correct an earlier ruling made concerning our client, effectively clearing his criminal record.
