    Rape is among the most serious crimes possible, and most definitely is considered a violent crime, as well. Probably, only murder is deemed more serious. If convicted, forget about ever getting this removed from your criminal record.

    Virtually any sex offense is considered a crime of violence. If you were convicted, it will not be possible to get it expunged unless the crime is very, very old and even then it is difficult at best.

    It is a violent crime and, you may not be able to have it expunged from your record. Look at the statute covering expungement, it will identify those charges that cannot be expunged.
