Got arrested but not convicted. The prosecutor rejected to take the case as it was a wrongful arrest.
This is case-specific. It depends on what you are charged with, and whether or not the DA's office believes they need the information from this arrest for potential future charges. The more serious the charges, the less likely you will get the DA to sign off on letting the records be expunged early.
You say something conflicting in your question: was the case no-billed after being presented to a grand jury, or did the Chief in that court decide to not pursue the charges because he/she believed it to be a wrongfful arrest. That could also affect the likelihood of being granted before the statute runs.

To add to the previous answer (though it was a very good answer): when he states that you might have to wait for the time limit to run, he's referring to the fact that you would have to wait until the Statute of Limitations has run out in your case.
In non legal terms - sometimes you have to wait until the state can never charge you for that crime again. This time limit varies depending on the offense.
