Thank you for your question. I understand that you are trying to expunge your criminal record. It appears that you are in Washington. In Washington, the process of expunging or sealing a criminal conviction is called "vacating a judgment."
Under Washington Statutes § 9.94A.640, felony convictions for violence or crimes against persons will not be vacated.
Felony assault in the third degree, however, under RCW 9.94A.030, is not defined as a "violent" crime for this purpose. So, based upon that, you could qualify for vacation.
The Washington courts website contains instructions on completing an application for sealing your records. See http://www.courts.wa.gov/newsinfo/index.cfm?fa=newsinfo.displayContent&theFile=content/guideToCrimHistoryRecords
I hope this helps.
