Expungement of a DWI conviction is the court-ordered removal of all official records of an individual’s arrest, plea, trial, and conviction. The effect of an expungement is to restore an individual’s legal status to that he or she had before the arrest, plea, trial, or conviction, as if the DWI charge never took place.
Missouri has a unique expungement statute that applies specifically to DWI charges. An individual seeking to have a DWI charge expunged from his or her record must meet specific criteria set forth by Missouri law.
In short, for a DWI charge to qualify for expungement, the following criteria must be met.
