Misdemeanors are divided up into two groups:
90 day misdameanors - city ordenance with a 500.00 dollar fine, with court costs are most sucessfull and easiest to expunge.
93 day misdameanors are more serious, taken on a case-to-case premise - it is also based on which city the misdameanor occurred. Some of these cases in certain cities would be considered as a 'city ordinance', 90 day misdemeanor. One way of checking to see if this is your type of misdemeanor is to check the ticket that was given to you. It would end with a 'OM' (meaning an 'Ordinance Misdameanor').
You may now qualify to expunge assault & battery, larceny, shoplifting, trespassing and other misdemeanors and certain felonies.
You cannot expunge any felonies where life is a possible punishment sentence.
You cannot expunge traffic related records, such as DUI's, DWI's, OWI's.
