Were you convicted either after a trial or a guilty plea? Receive deferred? Or was the case dismissed? If it was dismissed, you can hire a lawyer to expunge the matter. Otherwise, it will remain on your record.

    You fail to mention what the outcome of the case was. If acquitted, or had the case dropped before trial, or received an expungeable sentence, see the clerk of court office and file a Petition to Expunge the arrest. If you were convicted, and received a non-expungeable sentence, you cannot do anything to clear your record, as any statute of limitation for appealing the case have passed. You might be eligible to have your record sealed, in lieu of a full expungement.
