There is a waiting period after you have completed probation before you can apply to expunge your record.

So a felony assault and a felony burglary will just disappear, is that right? You cannot get that record expunged.

No. There is a very short list of convictions that are eligible for expungement but assault and burglary are not on the list.

I need a bit more information. Sounds like at least one of your felonies was a crime of violence. These are next to impossible to expunge. Assuming you could expunge, with your new charge, it prevents you from doing so for a least 5 years after you have completed all probation requirement on the current charge. Based upon what you have told me, I would say doubtful. Best to contact an attorney directly who can review your case history.
