Virginia does not automatically expunge or seal records.  You would have had to have a court hearing for records of your convictions to be expunged ("erased"), and only things for which you are found "not guilty" or the charge is "nolle prossed" can be expunged.  Otherwise, anything for which you are convicted in Virginia stays on your criminal record.  If you want to see what your record contains, you can obtain your record from the State Police.
