My reasearch suggest that yes, it can be expunged.

According to KS Stat. Ann. 21 - 4619:

(a) (1) A person convicted of an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a minor felony may petition for expungement of the conviction and arrest records if 3 or more years have elapsed since the person:

(A) satisfied the sentence imposed, or (B) was discharged from probation, a community correctional services program, parole, post-release supervision, conditional release, or a suspended sentence.

However, you should confirm this with a criminal defense attorney directly in your area.  Additionally, the expungement process can be technical and time-consuming, so having legal counsel to help you with all of this is a good idea.
