  • I have a battery lesser included charge. Pled nolo. Adjudication withheld. Can this be expunged.

    I hope so. If it is not an aggravated battery or a crime of domestic violence you should be able to seal the record and in ten years expunge same. You also can not have any convictions on your record. good luck to you!
