Murrieta Expungement Lawyer
How to Get Your Criminal Record Cleared in California
Do you have a criminal record in the state of California? Did you know
that it may be possible for you to get that record cleaned up, allowing
you to legally answer "no" when a potential employer asks if
you have a criminal record? The process of getting a record cleared in
California is called expungement and it is granted under California Penal
Code § 1203.4.
If you were convicted of a felony offense in the past, you will first need
to have that charge reduced to a misdemeanor in order to not be considered
an "ex-felon." Some crimes are hard and fast felonies, but others
- known as "wobblers" - can be either a felony or a misdemeanor.
domestic violence can be either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the severity of the
crime and other factors. You may be able to have a felony cleared if you
have successfully finished probation.
Some misdemeanors can be expunged from your record following a full court
hearing if you were never put on probation or if your probationary period
is over. While some types of crimes cannot be expunged - including some
sex crimes - many offenses can be removed from your record. Hire legal
assistance from a
Murrieta criminal defense attorney who can help you petition a California court and begin the expungement process.
