In 2004 my wife at the time and I got into an argument over

In 2004 my wife at the time and I got into an argument over the phone and things were said in the heat of the moment. When I got back to Denver from Kentucky I had a warrant for my arrest for threats to person and since it was my wife it was a domestic violence. I plead guilty since the words were said even though they were hollow. After some years had passed it had come to my attention that a charge of that nature cannot be warranted unless there is an imminent threat which there wasn't. I was in Kentucky when the phone call was made and my wife was here in Colorado. Is there a way to have this charge removed on this account? This is the only arrest on my record in my life. Thank you
