How to Clean my Record?

Everyone makes mistakes, but a question I often get is how does someone clean and clear a criminal conviction.

An expungement is a process by which a conviction or plea of either Guilty or No Contest in a criminal case is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves the defendant of certain penalties and disabilities that result from a criminal action. You may file an expungement petition after you have fulfilled all terms of probation, or have been discharged from the original term of probation, or have not been placed on probation and all your sentence terms have been completed.
