What is Expungement ?
Expungement is dealt with under California Penal Code Section 1203.4. A person can apply for record expungement if they were convicted of misdemeanor/felony, have successfully completed probation and don’t currently face criminal charges/probation/sentence. However, certain offenses like child sex-abuse, probation/parole violation, if you went to state prison, etc render expungement impossible.
Proof of your eligibility must be given, examined, evaluated and finally sanctioned.
A California Superior Court judge can issue a signed order dismissing the case as proof of expungement of criminal records. If you wish to declare that you don’t have a criminal record, this is valid, unless you run for public office become a peace officer or want to work for the California lottery commission.
