Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison today announced the launch of HelpSealMyRecord.org. It aims to allow prosecutors to assist Minnesotans to expunge their criminal records at no cost. Ellison says it will “help Minnesotans in every part of the state from the Twin Cities to Albert Lea to Ely to Moorhead to Baudette and everywhere in between be able to get an expungement of a misdemeanor or felony offense if it’s one of the enumerating ones, as long as they are eligible.” Ellison says without an expungement, people who have satisfied all the terms of their sentence for a crime that is eligible to be expunged can have trouble getting good jobs, education or housing. Ellison says it’s not right “to hold somebody out of the economy for a lifetime when they did something so many years ago that they have made up for and gotten on the right path and become law-abiding.” HelpSealMyRecord.org is a joint initiative of the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office and the Ramsey, Washington and Hennepin County Attorney’s Offices.
