Thank you, S.
A person can petition the court
to expunge certain misdemeanors
if they were previously convicted of a felony or misdemeanor other than a traffic violation under state or federal law and they have a conviction misdemeanor and were under age 18 at the time of pleading guilty or being found guilty.
This is to be filed with the Court that oversaw the conviction. The form may be found here
However, the issue is that while this would expunge the record, the military would still see it
erases the record for most civilian employers, etc, but allows government agencies and authorities to still view it. Ergo, I am afraid it would not be a "complete" erasure, although it would help.
However, one can apply for a waiver
that the military generally provides for low-level misdemeanors such as the one you have. It is very likely that with a combination of expungement and the waiver (or either, actually), the military should have no issues with this matter. The waiver process may be requested from the recruiter.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
