You won't be able to get a pardon. However, you are eligible for an expunction if you were not convicted. If you were convicted, you may be eligible for an order of non-disclosure. You will need to consult an attorney.
This does not constitute an attorney client relationship.
Actually, you can seek a pardon years from now. However, you are going to have to demonstrate some remarkable changes in you life and contributions to the community. One can seek a pardon whether or not you were actually convicted. There are two other avenues for dealing with criminal records. One is an expunction, which is generally not available unless the case was dismissed. The last avenue is an order of nondisclosure, which is generally available to those who plead guilty, but were given deferred probation.
