Expunging Criminal Charges From Your Record
An expungement is not available for every defense, an alternative would be probation or having your charges dismissed.
You do not have to plead guilty to request an expungement. You will have to wait months or years after your conviction until you are eligible for expungement. The term is shorter for misdemeanors, longer for felonies and unavailable for certain crimes.
