Expungement is the process whereby a person who has been convicted of a crime has that conviction removed from their criminal record. Expungements in of Missouri have historically occurred in very limited situations. As of January 1, 2018, the process and application of expungement to criminal convictions will be significantly broader than it had been in the past.

As of January 1, 2018, all misdemeanors and all non-Class A felonies will be eligible, subject to a long list of excepted offenses. Now, hundreds of non-violent, non-sexual crimes will suddenly be eligible for expungement — and that means some marijuana-related crimes as well.
For the purposes of Missouri expungements, convictions fall into two categories: alcohol-related driving offenses and all other offenses.
