Can my record be cleared? Expunging criminal convictions in California

Posted on in Criminal Defense

You've cleaned up your life, you're putting it all back together, but finding a job has become a nightmare. Lying on a job application and saying you weren't convicted is a sure way to get fired, so you tell the truth, but end up getting a "thanks, but no thanks," from the interviewer.

Or even worse, the complete silence as they get to that part of your application.

 

Expunging your criminal record:

Cleaning up a criminal record in California can be a complex process, confusing and hard to wade through. The California Court website has plenty of information, but if you're just not sure where to start, we can help you.

  • We can assist you in petitioning under California penal code 1203.4 to expunge your record, and apply for an early release from probation, if that's not complete.
  • We can assist you to petition under California penal code 17(b) to reduce a felony conviction to a misdemeanor, and petition to expunge your record.
  • If you were convicted of a felony, sentenced to county jail, and didn't receive probation, we can assist in petitioning for dismissal of the conviction.
  • If you were convicted of a felony and sentenced to state prison, or put under the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation authority, we can assist in petitioning for a Certificate of Rehabilitation and Pardon.
  • Did you know if you graduated from the juvenile justice system in California, even though you were assured at your graduation that your juvenile record was dismissed, it remains on your record until you're 38? We can assist you in petitioning to seal your juvenile records.
  • Did you know if you've been convicted as a sex offender, it requires different motions from the court?

We understand how confusing this can be, and can help. Contact us today to set an appointment. We'll fight for your rights under California law to start fresh.
