Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello. I will help you today. I have been an attorney for 27 years. I am reviewing your question and will be back to you shortly.
Please let me know what county in California the court is in.
Also, do you have any other convictions?
I can answer in writing. Ignore the call request
Do you have any other convictions?
OK. Give me a few minutes and I will give you all the information you need to seal your record if the case is dropped.
You are right. The section of the law is Penal Code Section 851.8.
You may want to consider getting an attorney to help you with this. It is a bit tricky to navigate this process. Here is a form from the California Attorney General's Office you can use if you want to try to do this yourself.
