A conviction remains on your record indefinitely even if you have paid the price in terms of making restitution or serving prison time. For example, a person who was convicted of robbery and serves his sentence in prison still has the robbery conviction on his record. If you are a first time offender and your conviction qualifies, you can apply for an expungement of the conviction. For more info visit
