A Blast From The Past: Why is your old North Dakota conviction still showing up?

I received a telephone call yesterday from a young man seeking to seal an old drug conviction from the State of North Dakota that has been haunting him for a decade. He explained to me the number of job opportunities and rental problems he has had for the past ten years due to an old conviction for selling marijuana in a school zone, which resulted in a felony conviction that has had long-lasting ramifications. He asked what could be done to try to clean up this old conviction, as he has turned his life around and moved onto a new career (a legal one!) that he wants to define him.
