Mo. St.§§ 610.131, 610.140
Missouri does not offer criminal record relief to survivors who were arrested and prosecuted as adults. There is limited relief available for survivors seeking to seal prostitution convictions where they were under age 18 at the time of the offense. This provision does not apply to any adult arrest records or convictions.
However, in 2021, Missouri greatly expanded its general expungement statute. Before someone can file for an expungement, the individual must have paid off his or her fine, completed his or her probation or parole, and have a three-year clean date to be eligible for a felony offense expungement or have a one-year wait to be eligible for a misdemeanor offense, municipal offense, or infraction expungement, under Missouri Law.
