      According to West Virginia code, a misdemeanor arrest or conviction record can be expunged. A person is eligible for expungement one year after a single conviction and two years if multiple convictions. This only includes non-violent felony convictions. The state has a long list of exceptions that are also not eligible such as:  
      • Physical injury to a minor
      • Sexual offenses
      • Domestic violence
      • DUI
      • Driving while license suspended or revoked
      Felony cases are not eligible for expungement. To find out if your criminal arrest or conviction can be expunged, and what the requirement are, contact the Charleston West Virginia criminal defense attorneys at The Giatras Law Firm.
