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.
