If a final conviction was entered on the case, you can never have it expunged. The only way you can remove a final conviction from your record is via pardon from the Governor.
It depends on how the case was resolved. If it was dismissed, you should be able to get it expunged. Also if you went to trial and were found Not Guilty, that should work. But if you were convicted, then the conviction is there to stay.
