How does a motion to set aside conviction work?

Asked 9 months ago - Louisville, KY

I have a conviction of trespassing and disorderly conduct 3 years ago, in Kentucky law you have to wait 5 years after the date of conviction to expunge. My question is can I use this motion to set aside to get a dismissal and a earlier expungement? It's very difficult finding a job, any help please. And are these usually granted?
