Clearing a Criminal Record - Expungement -

Our Mission

Expungement is the act of clearing a criminal record. It is applicable to an adult who has successfully completed probation by fulfilling all probation conditions/terms or being successfully discharged before the end of their probationary period; the applicant must not be serving any sentence or be on probation for any other offense.

Our office offers assistance with expungements every Tuesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 700 H Street, Suite 0270, Sacramento, California, where you can visit us in person. Please note that we serve on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Code definition:

California Penal Code (Section 1203.4) authorizes the court, in the interests of justice, to permit you to withdraw a previously entered guilty plea and have your case dismissed if you have fulfilled the conditions of probation for the entire period of probation or have been discharged from probation. To obtain a dismissal under this section, you must file a Petition in the jurisdiction where the prior conviction occurred seeking an Order by the Court to grant relief under Penal Code Section 1203.4. The court will calendar your request for a hearing before a judge. If your old case was a felony conviction, you may be eligible to have the charge reduced to a misdemeanor. 

You should consult an attorney prior to filing your petition.
