Will my conviction for possession of controlled substance ever get off my record?

I served my time and paid fines. How long is this going to be on my record? I haven't gotten in trouble since I got out of prison. Can I do something to get this off my name?

    Yes if you petition the court for expungement, it was only for possession, you have completed all conditions imposed, and it has been more than 5 years. See Miss Code Ann sec 99-19-71.

    You cannot expunge nor seal your record. They only hope is a pardon by the governor, and that is not likely at all.

    In Michigan it is possible to have certain convictions set aside or expunged under certain circumstances. As always, the devil is in the details.
