Question: Is it possible to have a drug crime expunged in Wisconsin?

Answer: Yes, it is possible to have a drug crime expunged in Wisconsin. There are actually a few different ways where it is possible. There is actually a specific statute within the drug code portion of the criminal code that allows for expungement under certain circumstances. It’s very, very specific, but if you fall into those circumstances, expungement is generally available. There’s also a general expungement statute in Wisconsin, and again, it carries some specific requirements, but if you meet those requirements, expungement is generally available. Other than that, there’s nothing in Wisconsin that allows for expungement of other criminal activities. However, if you don’t fall into one of those very specific areas, there’s always the possibility that you could have an agreement that the case should be sealed, and if you can get the judge to seal the case, that effectively removes that from any public view. It doesn’t remove it from your record entirely, but it makes it so that other people cannot see it or access it, and generally has the same affect for people when they’re looking at something to be expunged.
