Minnesota

With the exception of minor drug offenses, protected by Chapter 609A of the Minnesota state law, most offenses are not eligible to be expunged. While the process of requesting sealing of the record in the courts system is possible, it remains viewable to the public eye. However, if you can demonstration constitutional infringement or disruption with prospective employment or education a consideration for expungement can be made, although not guaranteed for approval—as is the case with any state. The state of Minnesota will typically not approve such requests if you have committed crimes in the previous 10 years of your offense.
