    Answered . I believe you are asking whether your record can be expunged. I would need to know the type of felony and what year your probation ended. Section 610.140, RSMo. provides the ability to expunge approximately three types of felonies. However, it is very unlikely that you will ever get the Suspended Execution of Sentence ("SES") and felony conviction removed from your record with the Missouri Criminal Records Repository or the FBI. Also, do not forget about your arrest record. That would be an independent expungement action pursuant to Section 610.122, RSMo. Another avenue, which is a long shot, is a Governor’s Pardon. You can research it online. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
