San Diego Expungement Attorney
Seal Your Criminal Record Through Expungement
Expungement concerns the sealing of criminal records. It makes a big difference
when applying for jobs. When a person applies for a job, he is typically
asked if he has ever been arrested or convicted of a crime. If he has,
he must answer yes or face misrepresentation charges if the employer checks
the record. However if his record is expunged, he can lawfully deny the
arrest or conviction. It must be noted that the sealing of criminal records
in California is not airtight.
Often employers still learn of expunged charges when they check. If they
do, the job applicant may not get the job but still has a complete defense
to any accusation of misconduct. When the employer fails to check however,
the applicant has a definite advantage in getting the job. If you need
expungement of your criminal record, you are urged to contact a
San Diego criminal defense attorney at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC.
Who may get their criminal records expunged in California?
Examples of individuals that may apply to get their records expunged include:
- Juveniles upon reaching the age of 18 may request their juvenile criminal
record be sealed.
- A person who has been arrested but never convicted may request that the
arrest be removed from the record.
- When a person finishes serving a period of probation, he may ask the court
to let him withdraw his guilty plea. If the court lets him, the court
then proceeds to dismiss the charge against him. The person may now ask
for the arrest and conviction of the dismissed charge be expunged.
