If you've already pled to it probably too late now.

Open the conviction or expunge it. I don't know if expungement will affect whether you pass the ABC requirements.
It is extremely difficult to reopen an indictable conviction. You had 45 days to appeal and 5 years to file a PCR. There must be grounds for a PCR. That is low chance of success and high cost. There is also a motion to withdraw a guilty plea which is lower chance of success and even higher cost. You can expunge 5 years after the sentence ends with difficulty or 10 years after very easily. I suggest you call one of us and discuss your options.
So this depends on a couple things, for one how long ago was this guilty plea. You may be able to reopen the case but if its been a while then that would be unlikely. You could also look at expungement but again that all depends on the time frame. I would suggest you contact an attorney and have a consultation to go over this issue.
