Montana Expungements in a Nutshell
Montana does not provide a legal means to expunge convictions for guilty parties. Whether the determination of guilt was made by a judge, jury or by entering a guilty plea, once entered it cannot be expunged.
Montana does, however, allow for expungement of records of convictions and records of DNA evidence in cases that have been reversed on appeal or sealing of the record in cases where the defendant successfully completed a deferred sentence. In both cases, the law is non-discretionary, meaning if you meet the qualifications then the court must grant your motion.
