New Mississippi Expungement Law 2010

In the past I have blogged about the narrow scope of Mississippi’s Expungement statute, as well as the collateral consequences of a conviction.  The Mississippi Legislature has finally decided to heed the public’s call for a more expansive expungement statute.

The new statute allows a first time offender to have one felony expunged five years after completion of the terms and conditions of the sentence and conviction.  Most notably, for larceny and possession of a controlled substance.

The following is a link to the text of the full bill:
