It was for a no left turn ticket in between the hours 4pm to 6pm. That happened in 2008. I received a speeding ticket in June 2007.

Based on the information you've provided, it seems clear that this was, in fact, a traffic violation and NOT a municipal ordinance violation. Unfortunately, it would be better for you if it were the other way around.

 

The State of Illinois permits an expungement of a municipal ordinance when the person, "not having previously been convicted of any criminal offense or municipal ordinance violation, charged with a violation of a municipal ordinance or a felony or misdemeanor, is acquitted or released without being convicted." So, if this were a municipal ordinance violation, it seems you would be eligible for an expungement.

 

Unfortunately, Illinois, like most states, does not permit a person to have tickets removed from their record after a conviction.
