I don't have any probation
Criminal cases for adult defendants are public records and cannot be sealed. However, a person who successfully completes probation and has also paid off all fees and fines associated with the conviction may seek an expungement. An expungement motion requests the case be re-opened, the guilty plea withdrawn, and the case subsequently dismissed. If an expungement is granted, the person is no longer considered convicted of the crime in that case. A person with a conviction on their record should definitely obtain a free consultation from a defense attorney to learn more about what can be done on their behalf.See question
