Procedure in WA state to expunge vacate misdemeanor assault DV charge

Kent, WA |

What is the process and cost of removing this conviction from my record?

My sentence was reduced to a 4th degree assault, gross misdemeanor and my sentencing and probation was completed in October 2005. Is it possible to have my record expunged now? I am 19 years old
