The best way to ascertain whether or not a criminal conviction that is seven years old is to contact a criminal defense attorney in the county where the conviction occurred and discuss what the judges in that county look at in whether they will grant the expungement and seal the criinal file. They look at no subsequent issues with the law, community service, education and being a good citizen. Such an attorney can be found on attorneypages.com.
