Question: How old does a case have to be to get it expunged?
Answer: Generally speaking, you can attempt to expunge a case at any point once you have fulfilled the requirements from the conviction as instructed from the Court (ie. paid all your Court fees, finished your Community Service…etc). If you are still on probation, it is possible to petition the Court for early release from probation in order to get the conviction expunged.
There is more information about expungements here: Benefits of getting your conviction expunged.
