Can you explain an "expungement?"

An expungement is destroying or sealing of your records of a criminal charge in magistrates’ court where you were found not guilty, the charge was dismissed or not prosecuted. Cases that fall in this category and were disposed of prior to June 2, 2009, can be expunged but the party will need to make a written request to the appropriate magistrate court. Cases disposed of after June 2, 2009, are processed as the disposition is entered into the computer system in accordance with the rules governing the magistrates’ courts.
