Rule 100.4.12 - Procedure for Expunging and Closing Criminal Records

1. In all cases under Section 195.290 in which the court orders the criminal records of a drug related charge to be expunged, the clerk of the division making such an order shall send an attested copy of the order to the Court Administrator. He shall send an attested copy thereof to the arresting law enforcement agency and shall also segregate and file the case file folder of all such cases separately from open files.

2. The Court Administrator shall advise the arresting law enforcement agency of cases in which there is an acquittal or dismissal of the charge. In cases involving the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department and the Jackson County Sheriff, this shall be done by furnishing them a weekly report of terminated criminal cases. When there is a dismissal or sentencing involving a defendant who was previously given a suspended imposition of sentence the Court Administrator shall furnish the arresting law enforcement agency an attested copy of the dismissal or sentencing judgment entry. The case file folder of all closed cases (acquittals and dismissals) shall be segregated and filed separate from open files.
