Felony “Expungements” And Reductions
If you've been charged with certain “wobbler” felonies, there is a chance that the court could declare your offense a misdemeanor by granting a motion to reduce your felony to a misdemeanor pursuant to California Penal Code 17(b). You must have completed all terms of your probation and sentence. After it has been declared a misdemeanor, it can then be dismissed from your criminal record.
If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor, the conviction will remain on your record forever. Our office can petition to dismiss your conviction once you have successfully completed all of the terms of your probation. Once a court grants the petition, your conviction will be set aside, a plea of not guilty will be entered, and the case will be dismissed.
A request for early termination of probation can be made upon the successful completion of your conditions of probation. Once your probation has been terminated, your misdemeanor conviction can be dismissed.
Diversion Or Deferred Entry Of Judgment
If you are charged with certain nonviolent drug possession offenses, you may be eligible to participate in diversion programs. If you successfully complete all of the diversion program requirements, your record will show a dismissal.
