Expungement Ordered Again After Two Erroneous Denials

By October 1, 2017 No Comments

The Minnesota Court of Appeals recently ordered the district court of Hennepin County to expunge a petitioner’s 2008 DWI conviction, reports Minnesota Lawyer. What makes the ruling notable is that the matter has been through the same cycle twice: the expungement was denied once by the district court, then ordered by the appeals court, denied again by the district court, and now ordered again by the appeals court. One of the representatives for the petitioner “said that the petitioner was exactly the sort of person the statute was written for — a one-time offender with an old conviction and exceptional community involvement who needed to get into Canada for his work.”
