What Qualifies Someone for the Potential to be Granted an Expungment

How to Qualify for Expungment in California?

To qualify for the consideration of an Expungement if you were convicted of a felony or misdemeanor offense, the following must exist:

  1. Successful completion of probation or the achievement of an early termination of your probation (payment of all restitution and fines, completion of any community service, counseling programs, etc. as required)
  2. You are not currently charged with a criminal offense
  3. You are not currently serving probation for a criminal offense
  4. You attended all required court appearances (you or your attorney)
  5. You are not serving time for a criminal offense
  6. You did not serve time in a California state prison
  7. Your offense was not sodomy with a child, oral copulation with a child or rape

Other than the above-stated requirements, a California court has broad discretion as to whether or not to grant or deny an Expungement petition. Some of the other factors that a judge might consider include things like:

  • Your performance while on probation
  • The seriousness of your original conviction
  • Your criminal history
  • Any additional evidence that demonstrates why you are entitled the granting of an Expungement
  • The opportunities you might have to gain employment
  • Your responsibility to support your family
  • Strong community ties

Defenses to a Racketeering Charge

RICO and California state law gives a tremendous amount of power to the government over the fate of those accused of racketeering. A racketeering case is extremely complex, and often includes a large number of criminal activity. Usually, racketeering charges or racketeering investigations involve a group of people within the same case. Consequently, to defend a racketeering charge, it is critical that defendants make sure that legal representation is sought immediately when an allegation of racketeering has been made against them or their business.
