Case expungement in different State

Asked about 1 year ago - Edison, NJ

Hello, I was arrested for Shoplifting in 2010 Texas, Case was dismissed after doing community service and donating money to food bank. Now I am NJ. Now I want my records to be expunged. Can I do it from NJ or should it have to be done only in Texas state only?? Please advise
