in the Penal code section 1203.4 for expungement it states, and i qoute,
"Dismissal of an accusation or information pursuant to this section does not permit a person to own, possess, or have in his or her custody or control any firearm or to prevent his or her conviction under Section 12021." does this not apply to me due to the fact that it will be reduced to a misdemeanor without expungement or am i just confusing myself
You are not getting an expungement, you are getting a charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
