The Louisiana laws on expungements are complicated and are revised and amended by the legislature on a yearly basis. The 2012 legislative session was no exception with five Acts enacted impacting La. R.S. 44:9. Navigating the myriad of complexities can be a daunting task for the unawares. The long and ever expanding Louisiana expungement statute as well as Articles 893 and 894 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure provide detailed instructions and requirements for the proper filing of a motion to set aside a conviction and dismissal of the prosecution and the filing of an expungement.
