The Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office strongly supports the rights of eligible people to have their old criminal records expunged. In 2020, Governor Whitmer signed into law a package of bills that will dramatically expand the availability of expungement in Michigan. Prosecuting Attorney Eli Savit worked to support that legislation in his previous role with the City of Detroit.
In 2021, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office is committed to working alongside community partners to help eligible Washtenaw County residents get old criminal records expunged. In the interim, please visit this do-it-yourself legal website. The site can help you assess your eligibility for expungement, and provide guidance as to how you should proceed.
