Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
While the charges are expunged, you would still need to wait 3 years from the "final determination" of the matter. See OK statute 21-1290.11(10) : An arrest for an alleged commission of, a charge pending for, or the person is subject to the provisions of a deferred sentence or a deferred prosecution for any one or more of the following misdemeanor offenses in this state or another state: a. any assault and battery which caused serious physical injury to the victim or any second or subsequent assault and battery, b. any aggravated assault and battery, c. any stalking pursuant to Section 1173 of this title, or a similar law of another state, d. any violation of the Protection from Domestic Abuse Act, Section 60 et seq. of Title 22 of the Oklahoma Statutes, or any violation of a victim protection order of another state, or e. any violation relating to illegal drug use or possession. The preclusive period for this paragraph shall be three (3) years and shall begin upon the final determination of the matter. B. Nothing in this section shall be construed to require a full investigation of the applicant by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.: http://oklegal.onenet.net/oklegal-cgi/get_statute?99/Title.21/21-1290.11.html
So after three years from the "final decision" (when the sentence was dropped, etc...) you could apply. You should include a copy of the decision and expungement order when you do apply for it.
