Expungement for an old Prostitution charge
Hillary Parsons -
Client had been convicted of a prostitution offense in 2013, which was
highly embarrassing for him to have on his criminal record. Client was
interested in seeking a different job, but was afraid to do so given the
conviction may show up on a background check. Attorney Hillary Parsons
petitioned for expungement. Client attended several months of therapy,
including marriage counseling, and Attorney Parsons was able to show the
Court that the factors favoring expungement of the conviction outweighed
the State’s interest in keeping the conviction on his record. Client
was thrilled and relieved when the expungement was granted. He will no
longer be haunted by his past conviction, and will be able to seek alternative
employment without fear of a background check.

Ms. Carlson represented client on charges of Felony Criminal Sexual Conduct.
Before the scheduled trial, Ms. Carlson was able to convince the prosecutor
to dismiss the charges against her client. However, the record of his
arrest and charge still remained and was damaging to him as a professional.
Ms. Carlson successfully petitioned the court for a full expungement of
all matters relating to her client’s arrest, charge, and ultimate
dismissal of very serious felony charges.
Charles Clas -
Defense: Case dismissed and expunged from record.
Outcome: Client was convicted of a felony aggravated forgery. The conviction had
caused him to have difficulty in his employment. Further, the client was
forced to carry around the burden of an old felony conviction which was
not representative of who he was as a person. The records held by both
the Minnesota BCA and the Minnesota court system were entirely expunged.
The client was very pleased with this result and is happy to be able to
put the past behind him.

on the matter, the court granted a full expungement of all the records
related to the arrests, charges, court proceedings, and convictions. Client
was promoted at his job as a result of this expungement.
