In which state?
Under South Carolina Code of Laws § 22-5-910, a defendant may apply three years after the date of the conviction for an order expunging the records of the arrest and conviction of a first offense conviction in magistrate, municipal, or general sessions court for a crime carrying a penalty of not more than 30 days imprisonment or a fine of $1,000, or both.
If this was a first offense, and your grandson has had no other conviction during the three-year period following his offense, the court may issue an order expunging his records.
Directions for completing an application for expungement may be found on this website: http://www.judicial.state.sc.us/expungementInfo/expAppProcessGS.cfm
