After a conviction, most people are worried about how the conviction will affect their ability to gain employment or keep a job they already have. Fortunately, under California Penal Code 1203.4, most people are able to obtain an expungement at some point after their conviction. For most people convicted of either felonies or misdemeanors, you will be eligible for expungement after your conviction if:
- You successfully completed all terms of your probation for the conviction; AND
- You are currently not charged with a new offense or serving a sentence for a new offense; AND EITHER
- You did not serve state prison time for the offense you are trying to have expunged from your record; OR
- You did serve state prison for an offense that would have otherwise been eligible for county jail under 2011’s Realignment legislation.
