Criminal record set-asides, also called “expungements,” can make a drastic difference for someone looking for work, housing, or applying for credit. In October 2020, the Michigan Legislature enacted a group of bills collectively known as the “Clean Slate” package. Now citizens can “clean their slate” and eliminate most crimes from their record so that their history will not become a life sentence to poverty. Explore the resources below and attend the Library’s upcoming expungement information session on Wednesday, May 18 at 6:00 PM to learn more about the expungement process and how to get started. If you can’t attend the program in person, it will also be livestreamed on the Library’s YouTube channel.
