Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!

A conviction does not automatically disappear after the passage of time. So the answer is "yes" you are still considered to be a felon.

It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs. It is my goal that you are satisfied with your information needs. No expert can promise you an answer that is favorable to your circumstances. But I will do my very best to explain the legal principles that are related to the facts you’ve described so that you can better understand the “why” of things.

If you have a follow-up question, please reply and ask it.

You can go back to the courthouse that handled your case to verify its status and file any petition for an expungement.

how long will it take to exsponge and how much

 

Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
You will have to contact a local criminal defense attorney for that. There is no set price schedule. Each attorney sets their own fees. As for the length of time, that can also vary. It usually takes several months.
