California Infraction Expungement
Traditionally infractions were not available for expungement in California under Penal Code 1203.4. This was changed by the California state legislature in January of 2011 with AB 2582 which amended PC 1203.4 to now include all non-traffic criminal infractions. Although infractions are considered to be less serious than a misdemeanor or felony conviction, they are still visible on background checks and can prevent you from gaining employment in this ultra competitive job market. The fact is that an employer is going to be less likely to hire an individual that has a petty theft infraction, or a similar crime, on their record as it can demonstrate some level of moral questionability. Why take any risks with your future?

California Infraction Expungement Summary
There is a common misperception that infractions on your record do not matter, and/or that they get automatically removed from your record after a certain period of time has passed. The fact is that over 80% of employers do background checks today, and if you have an infraction on your record they will see it. In the competitive job market that exists today, your criminal infraction has a very serious possibility of negatively impacting your marketability. Also an infraction conviction will not get removed from your criminal record unless you expunge the conviction no matter how much time elapses.
Here is a list of some of the more popular California infractions that our clients have had expunged from their criminal record:
Although the above infractions are not as serious as a felony or misdemeanor on your record, they can still be embarrassing and negatively impact your ability to secure employment in the future. We can file a California Penal Code 1203.4 petition with the appropriate court to have them re-open the case, set aside the guilty plea, the Nolo contendere (no contest) plea, or the factual finding of guilt, and to set aside the conviction and dismiss the case in its entirety. Moving forward you will no longer be considered convicted of the infraction by the state of California, and more importantly your criminal record will be permanently modified to show a dismissal rather than a infraction conviction. Once the infraction is successfully expunged by the court you can truthfully tell employers, your family, and all other interested parties that you have not previously been convicted of a crime.
