Dallas, TX asked in Criminal Law and Health Care Law for Louisiana

Q: If my name is on a global watchlist as reinstated, would this prevent me from getting an exspungment?

I have a misdemeanor from 2004 for unlawful alcohol sale and I just got reinstated no arrest for pretrial for Medicaid fraud. I was told my name will stay on the list ten years. Can I get my records clear or do I have to wait ten years?

A: Your question is not clear. I guess you are trying to say your license to sell alcohol has been reinstated. "No arrest for pretrial for Medicaid fraud", means what? Does that mean you are out on bond with a misdemeanor charge pending? Call a criminal attorney to clarify your question.
