Hello,

The same applies, although the more records you have, the least likely you are to have them pardoned, I am afraid. Naturally, you want to make your petition for the pardon as strong as possible. I wish I can give you better news.

i believe they r two or three noise ordinances, time doesnt expire on em? or i cant pay tp get rid of?
Michael,

A conviction stays on your record for life; it does not expire. Nor can you pay to have it redacted, I am afraid, for this would allow wealth individuals to "clear" their records and not have this option available for those less fortunate, thus creating an imbalance in the justice system.

Ergo, I am afraid that they remain for life, unless pardoned...

Again, my apologies.

hypothetically speaking what class of wealth are we talking about? the family that i come from will pay top dollar to have anything at all removed....money is not a problem.
Michael,

Well, what I meant is that it is just not done - there is no mechanism to do this, i.e. to buy out your conviction.

I mean, if you know someone on the inside that can clear the record, or know someone in the state that can help with the pardon committee..

But either of these would be illegal, and I really do not know anything about it.
