CRIMINAL Convictions:

- CAN THEY BE EXPUNGED?

Contrary to popular belief, Criminal Records are not automatically expunged by the mere passage of time. 

The clearing of your criminal record by expungement requires the filing of a Petition with the Court and the granting of that Petition by a Judge. 

Although there are various exceptions and certain circumstances where the law can get somewhat complex, an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney, sufficiently knowledgeable in this area, should, undermost circumstances, be able to expunge your California conviction by filing a petition, bringing a motion to withdraw your plea and having the case dismissed.

Therefore, if you have a conviction on your record, regardless of how minor, clearing your record by expungement is something that you should definitely be considering.
