    Default How to Get a Misdemeanor Expunged

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Minnesota

    When I was 18, a couple of my buddies and I were cited for "theft by swindle". We were never arrested, never sentenced to community service or anything to that regard. When I went to court the prosecutor stated that we wouldn't have to pay a fine, do jail time or anything like that if we just plead guilty. Our sentence was to "stay away from the victim" if I remember right. Well, being 18, I just agreed to it.

    I'm now 31 years old, have gotten married, had kids, gone to college and held a job in information technology for the past 6 years. My worst offense in the past 12 years was 2 speeding tickets. Nothing else. I went to apply for a new job, and was denied because of this being on my record. I'm assuming my two previous employers either never did a background check, or didn't care that it was on my record.

    Is there anyway I can get this off my record?
