Can I expunge a misdemeanor after 10 years?

A little over 10 years ago, I got in a stupid argument with my boyfriend and hit him in the face. I got charged with assault but it's been such a long time, I haven't spoken to him or seen him in years. Can I get this expunged? People don't look too kindly on me when they see that I got an assault charge on my record.

    You should not have been charged with assault if you only slapped him. Even then the plea should have been to a violation or an ACD dismissal for a first offense unless you are in a small town and did not have a good lawyer. New York only offers a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities, not expungment. You could still start your own business or do a lot of jobs if it is a misdemeanor, you could even become a lawyer.

    Yes, you should be able to by filing documents with the court. Generally, if crime free since, your chance is good.
