A: You need to go see a private criminal defense attorney near you about this matter. Certain governmental agencies have access to even expunged criminal records.
A: 893 is the felony expungement provision. there is a new type of expungement for convictions more than 10 years old. but, neither is an exoneration. if you need the effects of a conviction removed beyond what was given to you under 893, you need to seek a governor's pardon.
