I want to seal my criminal record

Resolved Question:

I was convicted of Grand Larceny in 1976, it is a class B felony. I have never been in trouble since. I do not have the money to hire an attorney can a person do this on their own and if so where do you start?

Yes, a person can do this on their own, if eligible. What State did this happen in?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
This happened in Washington State. I was convicted in Yakima County but served my probation in Skagit county. Will I have to do this through the County I was convicted in?
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 8 years ago.

The date of your conviction ( 1976) would disqualify you from having your record vacated. Class B felonies, that occurred before July 1, 1984, are not eligible for this.

So this means I will never be able to get this off my record? No sealing of my record either?
