Expungement Attorney in Bakersfield
Can I erase my criminal conviction?
If you have been convicted of a crime and are concerned about the effect
that your conviction will have on your future, you may want to consider
expungement. Certain eligible individuals may qualify to have their convictions
completely erased after paying the penalty for their crimes without incident.
All fines must be paid, all jail or prison terms must be completed, and
probation must be completed or ended early without any incident in order
for a person to qualify for expungement.
How to Get a Conviction Expunged in California
Expungement is a detailed process that is best pursued with the counsel
and guidance of a Bakersfield criminal defense lawyer. You will first
need to make sure that your conviction qualifies for expunction. No sex
offenses qualify for expunction, and there are some felony offenses that
are not eligible either. You may also not file for expungement if you
violated probation, have not completed probation yet, or have failed to
pay all fines. The sooner you speak with an attorney and discuss your
case, the sooner you can work to erase your criminal record as though
you were never convicted. You could get a fresh start!
