Court’s order expunging conviction for domestic battery was void. Eligibility for expungement is allowed narrowly, and only where specifically authorized by statute. Expungement of domestic battery record is allowed only if acquitted, or received supervision or probation, but not if received conditional discharge upon conviction. (STEWART and WEXSTTEN, concurring.)
