Lynne Torgerson wins expungement of theft case

Expungement of theft case out of Minnetonka granted

Expungement Lawyer Lynne Torgerson has won another expungement case.  This case involved a theft of a telephone from an employer who was a telephone company.  It occurred in the late 1990s and it was continued for dismissal.  Where a case is continued for dismissal and a person successfully completes same, later, if said person seeks an expungement, the law provides that he is presumptively entitled to an expungement, unless the State can prove by clear and convincing evidence that the State needs the records.  So, where the original case was resolved in a defendant’s favor, it is much easier to obtain an expungement, because, under the law, the expungement should be granted unless the State can prove a need for the records.  That is unlikely.  Herein, the petition for expungement was fortunately, granted.  Kudos to Ms. Torgerson and her client!
