MERCED EXPUNGEMENT LAWYERS
Want to Clear Your Criminal Record?
Do you have a criminal record? The consequences of a criminal conviction
last far beyond the last day of your jail term, probation, or even the
last penny of your fine. A criminal record can last a lifetime and affect
you in many ways – negatively impacting your job opportunities,
finances, and even ability to travel.
Fortunately, our team of
Merced criminal defense attorneys can help you clean up your criminal record through expungement. If you
are interested in having your criminal record cleared of either misdemeanors
or felonies, speak with Tenenbaum Law Firm immediately.
The Basics of Criminal Expungement in California
Expungement is a remedy where a criminal case that has already been decided
is reopened and the conviction entered by the judge is set aside. Under
California state law, a misdemeanor or felony conviction may be cleared
by withdrawing the guilty or no contest plea and having the case dismissed,
which means that the conviction no longer appears.
Unfortunately, expungement of a conviction does not wipe the slate clean;
punishments such as firearms prohibitions, inability to run for public
office or strikes for
violent crimes cannot be erased. These sanctions are in place for life.
Other examples of what an expungement
does not do include:
- Omit the conviction from applications for government licenses
- Seal the court case file
- Prevent a conviction from being a "prior" for sentencing enhancement
- Prevent the conviction from being used to revoke a government license or permit
- Prevent the conviction from being used to deny citizenship
Tenenbaum Law Firm's experienced lawyers have
handled thousands of cases, including reducing charges from a felony to a misdemeanor. Depending
on the nature of your case, you may be entitled to an expungement, or
the expungement may be entirely at the discretion of a judge. Having aggressive,
legal representation can make all the difference.
