Can I have a 3rd degree retail fraud expunged? 5 Answers as of June 11, 2012I plead guilty to 3rd degree retail fraud back in Oct. 2004. I recently applied for a job this month and it showed up on my background check. The company I'm hiring for says they need to see a court dispostion with the outcome of the case. Is there anyway I can get this expunged since besides a speeding ticket I have nothing on my record and this happened when I was 19?

You can petition the Court where you were convicted of the Retail Fraud 3rd Degree to expunge your conviction as long as your prior record is clean or consists of only a minor conviction (misdemeanor punishable by 90 days in jail or less). There are several steps you will need to take to get an expungement, and I recommend that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you.
