While many of the estimated 778,000 cannabis convictions in Illinois are eligible for automatic expungement, there are at least 71,000 criminal records on file that will not be expunged automatically. Even if your record was automatically expunged, you’ll still need to file a Motion to Vacate & Expunge your court record.
Don’t wait until the last minute to find out you are not eligible for automatic expungement. Your answers to the questions on the form at NewLeafIllinois.org, or the New Leaf hotline, will help a legal aid professional determine your eligibility and get you the best help possible.
