The District of Columbia does not have any expungement statute per se, and no jurisdiction with which I am familiar allows expungement of convictions, unless by "conviction" you mean probation before judgment or the D.C. practice of pretrial diversion following an admission of wrongdoing, and conditioned upon performance of community service.
THIS RESPONSE DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE. IF YOU WISH TO OBTAIN LEGAL ADVICE UPON WHICH YOU CAN RELY, PLEASE CONTACT MY OFFICE OR THAT OF ANOTHER ATTORNEY FAMILIAR WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER OF YOUR INQUIRY.
It depends on the jurisdiction. Some states and the Feds provide for expungement, others do not. You need to contact an experience attorney in your jurisdiction.
