Customer Question

Hello, I have a question concerning a felony in illinios, it is a criminal damage to property from twenty years ago. I can not get it expounged. I was wondering if I could get it reduced to a misdemenor? An attorney in utah mentioned a "402 Motion" in that state. Anything like that in illinois?
thanks jeff

Yes, you can file a motion to request the felony be amended to read as a misdemeanor conviction in Illinois. But be advised that this request is very rarely granted in Illinois. Generally, there must be extremely extenuating circumstances.
