Court Clarifies Duties In Expungement Statute
Wisconsin Supreme Court makes ruling in State v. Hemp, 2014 WI 129
Key holdings from the decision:
When a defendant successfully completes probation, he or she is automatically entitled to expungement;
The duty to forward a certificate of discharge rests with probation, not the defendant;
The expungement process should be self-executing.
If you know someone who needs expungment, has not been granted expungement, or was denied expungement, call (715)-842-2291.
