Sampling of Successful Expungement Cases

by Benjamin Tarshish on May 30, 2024

Below is a sampling of just some of the positive results Attorney Kyle Kosieracki and the law firm Tarshish Cody, PLC were able to achieve for their clients.

State v. D.K.  Waseca and Freeborn Counties.  Statutory expungements of two Gross Misdemeanor Theft convictions, a Domestic Assault conviction, and Domestic Assault charges that had been resolved through a diversion program.  Although the petitioner had not been charged with any crimes for several years, expunging these four records—given the seriousness of the charges and the level of convictions—was a very favorable outcome.  Expungement allowed the petitioner to travel outside the country for work; his inability to do so because of these criminal records had significantly limited his earning capacity.

State v. C.H.  St. Louis County.  St. Louis County charged the petitioner with Fifth Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct.  St. Louis County ultimately dropped the charges against the petitioner, and Attorney Kosieracki brought a petition to expunge the records.  St. Louis County vigorously objected to the expungement, even though it had previously determined there was not enough evidence to prosecute the petitioner.  The prosecution attempted to introduce inadmissible evidence into the proceedings, and Mr. Kosieracki convinced the judge to exclude the County’s evidence. Despite the seriousness of the charges and over the state’s vigorous objection, Attorney Kosieracki secured an order expunging the records.  

State v. G.J.  Hennepin County.  Attorney Kosieracki secured statutory expungement of a Domestic Assault conviction even though the records were not impacting the petitioner’s ability to secure housing or a job.  This was a great result given the seriousness of the conviction and the minimal effect the records were having on the petitioner’s life. The petitioner is now free to travel the globe without worrying about being denied admission to other countries because of these records.

State v. M.S.  Goodhue County.  After advocating to the prosecution for petitioner’s cause, Attorney Kosieracki persuaded the prosecution to agree to a statutory expungement of a drug conviction.  Attorney Kosieracki was able to secure an expungement order from the court a mere 31 days after he was retained.  The petitioner was then able to pursue his dreams of teaching English in a foreign country.

State v. S.K.  Ramsey County.  Again, Attorney Kosieracki worked with the prosecutor to secure a statutory expungement of a petitioner’s misdemeanor conviction.  The petitioner had been denied housing based on these records. Attorney Kosieracki worked quickly to have the petitioner’s conviction sealed so that she could secure suitable housing for her family.

State v. R.D.  Dakota and Olmstead Counties.  The petitioner was having difficulty getting into a nursing program and was concerned about potential licensing issues due to her misdemeanor convictions for Theft and Issuance of a Dishonored Check.  Mr. Kosieracki worked with both prosecutorial offices to secure agreements to expunge the convictions.  In a matter of months, the petitioner’s records were sealed, and she was finally free to pursue her dreams unhindered by her criminal record.
