If Minnesotans are eligible for expungement, the AG's office will work with them and with the prosecutors to file the necessary paperwork to have their records sealed.

A series of expungement clinics across the state will take place this year, including stops in Bemidji and White Earth Nation.

The Minnesota Attorney General’s Office announced the Clean Slate tour, which allows people with old convictions to have their records sealed if they meet certain criteria.

The tour kicked off Saturday, March 23, in St. Paul, with stops on May 8 and 9 at the Shooting Star Event Center in Mahnomen and the Northwest Indian Community Development Center in Bemidji.

At each tour stop, staff from the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office and other partners will be available to review Minnesotans’ records and determine if they are eligible for expungement. If they are, work with them and with the prosecutors to file the necessary paperwork to have their records sealed.

According to the AG’s office, since it launched the program in 2020, the office has expunged at least 630 cases.

To RSVP, visit the Clean Slate page on the AG office’s website.
