The charge I am petitioning to expunge is a Summary grade Disorderly Conduct. The incident was a verbal confrontation between me and a person that I don't personally know.
Usually the court is looking for the reason why you are seeking expungement. For example, you are applying for a new job, or a specific license with the state. In other words, is the conviction prohibiting you from pursuing something, or being able to attain something. Is it otherwise getting in your way?
Try to list a compelling reason as to why you are seeking the expungement.
It is clear by your question, that you are in over your head. If expungement of your prior conviction is important to you, then hire an experienced criminal defense attorney and get this job done correctly. This is not the time for self-help. Good luck,
I agree that just because you CAN fill in a form requesting an expungement does not mean you should. I too would advise hiring an attorney. If you don't succeed, there is usually a wait to be able to try again.
This is a general answer for informational purposes and should not be taken as actual legal advice. The questioner is NOT a client. If I answer that you should talk to a lawyer, I mean it.
