My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question.
The answer is "yes." The only thing that is required of you is to NOT pick up any new cases during the proceedings (and after). The reason is two-fold:
1) An expungement can only occur if there are no other criminal convictions (aside from the one you are seeking expungement for). This is an eligibility requirement. This means that if you are convicted of an offense, NOTHING on your record can be expunged (including unrelated offenses).
2) Expungements are only a once-in-a-lifetime relief. That means that if you were to pick up an arrest or conviction either during, or after, the proceedings, those new offenses/convictions cannot be expunged if you have already been granted an expungement.
Any questions based on this? If so, please ask and I would be happy to answer further.
