Legal Question

Asked on: 10/14/10, 12:03 pm

I live in Virginia and when I was 22, I was charged with 4 counts of petty larceny (all pertaining to the same case). This occurred 3 years ago. This was my first offense and I haven't had any subsequent arrests or trouble during my probationary period. I paid restitution voluntarily. I took the required counseling that was ordered by the court and my probationary period is now over. Even though I continue to attend college, I haven't been able to find a job because of this record. Is there a way that I can petition the courts to expunge or seal my records, so that I may gain employment?
