Any person who enters a guilty plea or is found guilty of a misdemeanor when under the age of 18 can have that misdemeanor expunged from their record so long as the following conditions are met:

  • The person was under the age of 18 when the offense was committed;
  • Two years have passed from the date of conviction; and
  • The person has not been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, other than a traffic offense, during the two years immediately following the conviction date.

Any person with a felony or misdemeanor that was dismissed or found not guilty is eligible to have the charge expunged so long as that person was not previously convicted of a felony.  If a charged is dismissed resulting from compliance with a deferred prosecution agreement with the State, the Court will charge a $175.00 fee upon the filing of the expungement petition.  If the charge was dismissed or the person was found not guilty, there is no fee.
