In Ohio, unless the misdemeanors were part of the same conduct as the felony, then you are correct. Unfortunately, as the law currently stands, courts can not seal a case where there are multiple convictions. However, there have been numerous proposals in the Ohio General Assembly to change the expungement statutes, so I would suggest that you call or write your state senator/representative and encourage them to support amending the law.
