Hello! I am a licensed attorney who is admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here to see my ratings information) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. According to the CA courts:
If you were convicted of an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony and were NOT sentenced to state prison or put under the authority of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, you can petition for a dismissal (or expungement).
Now, ordinarily I would just put in all of the reasons how you could get your record expunged, however it would be too long and it really wouldn't be helpful. However, if you click here and head down towards the bottom of the screen, you can compare whatever your conviction was in that situation with whether you would be able to get it expunged. the court has a lot of different situations under which a person can have the record expunged so without seeing what your ultimate conviction was, I wouldn't be able to tell you for sure, but within about 15 minutes you will be able to figure it out on your own. Did you have any other questions one question
