Cleaning Up Your Criminal Record

There are several avenues we can employ to clean up your criminal record in Orange County: seal or destroy a record of arrest, petition for a finding of factual innocence, expunge a conviction, or seek a certificate of rehabilitation and a pardon.

we can petition to seal or destroy your criminal arrest record. If you have been arrested, based on the outcome of the criminal proceedings, you may be able to pursue this remedy against the agency that arrested you. The result is, anyone doing a background check in the city where you were arrested would not find any record of your arrest. Police records are subject to disclosure under the California Public Records Act or Freedom of Information Act. This mean anyone can request them, and you don’t want them to find anything.

we can also petition the court to expunge your criminal record whether you have plead guilty or been found guilty. Whether you were placed on probation or not, an expungement in Orange County Superior Court allows your “rap” sheet to reflect charges were dismissed, instead of showing that you were convicted. The filing fees for an expungment in Orange County are $120 if you were placed on probation, and $60 if you weren’t. Once the petition is granted, when asked if on a job application whether you have ever been convicted of crime, you can proudly answer “NO”!

In the more serious matters, it may be necessary then to file for a certificate of rehabilitation to restore your rights if you have been convicted of a felony. A certificate of rehabilitation in Orange County is the one legal proceeding that allows for termination of sex offender registration. With the growing desire by society to publish and share the information in the registration database, under certain circumstances, a certificate of rehabilitation from Orange County provides the only relief from the requirements of Penal Code § 290.

To seek a pardon from the Governor, one must follow specific legal steps, including first requesting and receiving a certificate of rehabilitation. This is a lengthy, time consuming process. You should only turn to a qualified and competent attorney who has successfully helped clients obtain such relief. Call me today to help you with your request to clean up your record, today.
