An automated system for expunging convictions without the necessity of filing an application will be established.
Up to 2 felony convictions will automatically be expunged the later of 10 years after sentencing or the person’s release from custody.
Up to 4 misdemeanors will automatically be expunged 7 years after sentencing.

  • convictions for “assaultive offenses“;
  • convictions for “serious misdemeanors“;
  • convictions for offenses punishable by 10 or more years imprisonment;
  • convictions that involve a minor, a vulnerable adult, injury or serious impairment of a person, death of a person;
  • convictions that involve human trafficking; and
  • any conviction that cannot be expunged under new MCL 780.621c.

Processes for identification and expungement of convictions eligible for automatic expungement are being developed by multiple state agencies.
