Two siblings arguing. One sister lied and said she was assaulted. Second sister was under the influence and did not properly defend herself. It was a conviction. Can this be expunged? The person in question has completely changed her life in a positive direction pursuing higher education and keeping a clean record. But it's influencing her ability to get a job and her future. Person was an adult at the time. This occurred about two-and-a-half 3 years ago.
Yes, but not at this time. The defendant must wait five years after probation ended. Probation can be two to five years, so the real waiting period is seven to ten years.
