This answer was rated:

Im currenttly trying to have my Juvenile records sealed in San Diego Ca, but i cant have them sealed if i was found to have committed an offense listed in subdivision (b) of welfare and institution code sec. 707; In my case the court finds that i the minor admits to count 1, PC245(a)(1)/17(b)(4) The court dismisses Count 2, PC12020(a)(1)/17(b)(4), a misdemeanor and count 3, PC242, a misdemeanor, with a Harvey waiver.   So in my case am i elgible to have my records sealed?
245. (a) (1) Any person who commits an assault upon the person of
another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm or by
any means of force likely to produce great bodily injury shall be
punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four
years, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a fine
not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and
imprisonment.

WIC 707(b)(14): Assault by any means of force likely to produce great bodily
injury.

Based on the above statutes I believe you are not not eligible but it would still be worthwhile to have a local attorney review the actual court files and see if there may be a way to retroactively reduce the convictions to a level that would allow them to be expunged.
