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. For example, 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.
