When a person is convicted of a crime it can have a significant impact on their future. Having a felony or misdemeanor on your record can restrict your ability to get employment and other benefits. Felony convictions can also prohibit you from owning a gun, keep you from serving on a jury, and restrict other important legal rights.
In California if you have been convicted of a crime, you may be eligible for expungement, which can include getting your case reduced to a misdemeanor and/or "expunged" (also sometimes called having your criminal record sealed). Not everyone is eligible to have their case reduced to a misdemeanor or expunged. However, it is worth exploring whether an expungement can be filed in your criminal case.
If you have questions about whether you are eligible for an expungement in California, contact the Law Office of Jessica Agnich for additional information about expungement and other post-conviction record relief.
