Statute

M.S.A. § 609A.03(6A)

Minnesota does not offer any relief specific to human trafficking survivors but does have a specific expungement provision based on status as a crime victim. If the court finds a connection between the criminal record to be expunged and the person’s status as a crime victim, it can order the record of the case sealed.  If it seals the record, the crime victim is legally restored to the status the person occupied before the arrest, indictment, or information.
