California Expungement Laws
While most employers cannot ask about arrests that do not end up in a conviction, you may still want to have your record sealed. If your arrest did not lead to you getting convicted, or if your conviction was reversed on appeal or vacated, you could petition to have your record sealed.
On the other hand, if you were convicted of a misdemeanor of a felony, then you may be eligible for dismissal. Keep in mind, there are certain waiting periods based on the circumstances of your case.
If you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony and sentenced to probation, you may file for expungement once you satisfy all conditions of your sentence. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor or infraction and served a sentence that does not include probation, then you must complete your sentence and wait one year until you can file for expungement.
If you were convicted of a felony and served a jail sentence, you may petition for expungement once you complete your sentence and wait at least one year if your sentence included mandatory supervision or at least two years if your sentence did not include mandatory supervision. If you were convicted of a felony and served time in prison, such a conviction cannot be expunged unless the underlying offense is eligible for resentencing.
