This act also provides that beginning August 28, 2027, the Office of State Courts Administrator (OSCA) shall identify and transfer on a monthly basis all clean slate eligible offenses records to the Central Repository and every prosecuting agency in the state within 30 days of the offenses becoming eligible for expungement. All records currently eligible for automated expungement shall be expunged by August 28, 2029. The provisions of this act shall not expunge any delinquent court costs, fines, fees, or other sums order by the court. A prosecuting agency may file an objection to the automated expungement within 60 days from notification of expungement by OSCA.

Additionally, OSCA shall provide notification of records to be expunged to the presiding judges of every circuit court and the courts shall order the expungement of all records eligible for expungement, as provided in the act. The Missouri State Highway Patrol shall keep nonpublic records of expungement available to certain entities.

Finally, this act provides that, for purposes of the law, the petitioner shall be considered not to have been previous convicted, except for purposes of the requirement to pay restitution to the victim and other purposes as provided in the act.
