    Answered . You can petition the court to be removed fromt the list. However, be advised that these petitions are generally not successful. Much will depend on what type of offense you were convicted of. Also, understand that even persons who get minor sex offenses expunged from their criminal records in Michigan are still required to register under the sex offender registry. Therefore, expungement will not be a viable option for you. You should consult with an attorney experienced with criminal law, and in particular post-conviction remedies.
