My charge date is 10/26/2006. My expungement date is 4/16/2011. The type of charge I got can not be dropped to misdemeanor. I can't start school until a felony does not show up on a basic backgroud check. I don't know what else I can possible do? What does it mean to seal my record? I don't understand what good a expungement does if it doesn't really help me? Please help me? I feel as though I should just give up. Thank you so much for your time.
