Sorry to hear about your boyfriends trouble. Sometimes we get wrapped up in bad situations. The judge may be right about not being able to get the conviction expunged. In my state of Texas, felonies can not be expunged. You can however after a period of time get an order of non disclosure. It may all depend on the type of offence.
I've been trying for a while to see if I am even considered a "convicted" felon. You see I was charged in a 1st degree felony drug case and plead guilty to receive deferred adjudication. I completed my sentence early and the judge didn't technically find me guilty. My probation officer nor my attorney could give me a straight answer on if I could own a firearm and I can't find a good answer online either. I guess I'll just go to a gun shop and try to buy one.
Anyways good luck to the both of you and you may want to check about that order of non disclosure.
