A felony conviction in California may be reduced to a misdemeanor. Reducing your felony conviction to a misdemeanor is highly effective in protecting your future and clearing your felony criminal record.

First, a formal motion is prepared and presented to the court in California Where your conviction was received. The court will consider whether you have completed all the requirements of probation, and if your probation is finished. The court will also want to know whether you have been convicted of a new offense, charged with any new offense, or currently on probation for any other offense.

The court will then schedule a hearing on your case after we submit the motion to the court. Your appearance in court will sometimes be necessary. At the hearing, the court will determine whether or not to grant your request to reduce your felony conviction to a misdemeanor.

Felony convictions in California where probation was not granted, and a term in state prison was imposed, are not eligible for expungement. The only relief that is available is a Certificate of Rehabilitation and Pardon, or Direct Application for Governor's Pardon.

If probation is granted and no prison term imposed, Penal Code Section 1203.4 will mandate, just as it does in misdemeanor cases. The court will want to know that you have successfully completed the terms of your probation and that your probation is completed, whether any new offenses have been charged and whether you are on probation for any new offenses.
