What does it take to have a solicitation of a minor charge removed from your record, including the sex offender information?

The inmate, currently serving, was using an online dating website and a girl, who was 13, posed as a 20 year old. But he still went to prison because of the explicit texts they shared. He did not know of her age, and the court, including his public defendant, did not bother to go back and look at their correspondence.
