Malcolm P. LaVergne's answer Not sure about "cleaned," but technically you can have your record "sealed" in Nevada for a Category E felony after two years from the date of your release from custody or release from parole/probation whichever occurs later. See NRS 179.245(1)(c). "A category E felony after 2 years from the date of release from actual custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever occurs later."

Sean Neahusan's answer She needs representation. This charge is the a misdemeanor, but can impact some Constitutional Rights. This case should go away with a reasonable Prosecutor.
