Convictions for many crimes may be eligible for expungement. Examples include Felonies such as Theft in the First Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance (cocaine, marijuana, meth), Assault in the Third Degree, and many Misdemeanors. Additionally, arrests that do not result in convictions can be expunged in many situations.

Waiting periods can apply. In some situations, a District Attorney may oppose an expungement motion, but if the person seeking expungement has a capable and experienced attorney the expungement may be granted despite the District Attorney's opposition.
