Under what circumstances am I eligible for an expungement?

With the exception of certain provisions in plea agreements and time periods after conviction, generally an expungement is for those who have not been convicted of the crime for which they were arrested — either by winning at trial or by the prosecutor's dismissal of the charges (sometimes even after a plea of guilty).  There are some situations in which a charge is eligible to be expunged after a long period of time, despite the fact that the person was convicted.
