Mississippi's new expungement law

On April 16, 2019, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed off on a new law that changes Mississippi's expungement laws dramatically. Before, only a few people qualified to have a felony conviction cleared from their record. Now, just about any first-time nonviolent felony offender can ask a judge to enter an order clearing their record. This is a huge new opportunity for many Mississippians to clear up their past mistakes and get a fresh start.
