Expungement Lawyer Lynne Torgerson wins assault expungement in Goodhue County

Minnesota Expungement Attorney Lynne Torgerson wins expungement of assault conviction in Goodhue County

Minnesota Expungement Lawyer Lynne Torgerson won expungement of an assault conviction out of the County of Goodhue, State of Minnesota.  Initially, Ms. Torgerson’s client was charged with gross misdemeanor 911 interference, and domestic assault.  In the intervening years, Ms. Torgerson’s client had gotten married, raised 3 children, maintained a successful 40 year career, and had become a pilot and minister.  He/she had also not incurred a criminal conviction for 14 years.  Ms. Torgerson’s client wished to obtain an expungement primarily so that he/she could regain his/her Second Amendment rights to possess firearms.  A collateral consequence of an expungement in a state court is that under federal law, the federal law prohibition on possession of firearms is supposed to be removed.  At this time, the FBI/ATF/NICS seem to be resistant to obeying the law; we shall see.  The Goodhue County Attorney’s Office did not oppose the request for expungement.  The Goodhue County District Court concluded that Ms. Torgerson’s client had established by clear and convincing evidence that his interest in expungement was commensurate to the disadvantage to the State in having the records expunged and granted the extraordinary remedy of expungement.  Well done client and Ms. Torgerson.
