If both cases were felonies, you are not eligible. Also, you must wait 5 years after your sentence ends.

Expungement means you don't have to disclose conviction to employers. You are not eligible for expungement because you went to prison. You may be eligible for a certificate of rehabilitation.

I would have to know the details, and if this is pertaining to Michigan you have five years from the time that you have gone off of parole before you will be able to make an application for expungement if you qualify. Stay straight and counsel with an attorney to see what your rights may be. One thing I can guarantee you, any additional criminal convictions will make expungement impossible.
