Can I Expunge My Offense From Another State?
Expungements for Minnesota offenses must go back to the county where the case was prosecuted. Offenses from other states are unable to be expunged in Minnesota. A Minnesota judge does not have jurisdiction over agencies and courts from other states. A Minnesota judge also does not have jurisdiction to expunge a federal case. And currently, there is no federal expungement process. A person looking to expunge a case from another state would be best served by contacting an attorney in that particular state. A person looking to expunge a federal case should instead look into seeking a federal presidential pardon.
