Clean Up Your Criminal Record

A criminal conviction can affect your life for years, even after you've served your sentence. The details of your criminal record can make it difficult to find a job, apply for a loan, buy or rent a home, and engage in other routine aspects of your daily life.

Fortunately, it's possible to clean up your criminal record using a process called expungement. Your record is never truly erased — law enforcement agencies will still have access to these records — but expungement can help limit the information that is visible to prospective employers, loan officers, landlords and other private citizens.

In California, a "post-conviction record clearance" serves as an expungement. In misdemeanor cases, for instance, a case can be retroactively dismissed after the offender has successfully completed a jail or probation sentence. This dismissal will replace a guilty plea in your record.

Similarly, it is possible for felony convictions to be reduced to misdemeanors after the fact. A "certificate of rehabilitation" is the first step toward earning a full pardon for a felony conviction.
