Expungement.Some states have established procedures for the subsequent "expunging of the record," "dismissal of charges," or "pardon" upon evidence of rehabilitation of the offender. Such action has the legal effect of extinguishing the initial "conviction" or "adverse juvenile adjudication" so that, under state law, the applicant has no record of conviction or adverse juvenile adjudication. In spite of this action, the record must be revealed and a waiver of the applicant's disqualification(s) is required at the proper enlistment decision level.

Records ARE kept some where some place. An expunged, sealed record NEVER truly goes away. It may not be available to the public or to certain background agenices, but I guarntee that someone in the county or city in which you committed that felony could obtain some type of record on your crime. Its not like its destroyed forever and it never happened. read my post above, regardless if its sealed or expunged it still NEEDS to be revealed or it possible that you could be discharged for fraudulent enlistment and or face criminal charges.
It's important to note here that federal law requires applicants to divulge ALL criminal history on recruiting applications, including expunged, sealed, or juvenile records. Additionally, in most states, such records are accessible to military investigators, regardless of what you have heard to the contrary.

EDIT: it might also be harder in LA to get an "expungement" if in fact they do destroy all the records. a history of felonies isn't exactly something you want to expunge. then when he commits it again the judge has no idea what was expunged before so he does it again.
