It depends on what you were convicted of. If you weren’t convicted, if you got a dismissal or a not guilty verdict you can remove to expunge it right away. If you were put in some type of diversion program you can get your case expunged a year after you’re discharged from probation. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you can discharge it two years after probation, a gross misdemeanor four years, and a felony five years. Only certain felonies apply and you’ll have to look under the new statute that passed in January of 2015 to determine whether your case is eligible.
