Hello-Well the first step if it is a W&I Code 707b offense is to petition to have a PC Section 17 filed if the section is a alternative felony. Once the Court allows this then under a recent case (which of course is under appeal) declares that misdemeanors (PC 1203.4) can be sealed. I hate to list this one important case while its authority is being challenged. If the Court says the case is in "published" format then the petition in this venue can be sealed before the age of 38 for example (when every case is sealed except murder it seems) . Another way is to have a DEJ outcome sealed once the Office of Probation sends the DEJ to the Court for closure. Then once that part is signed off then a petition pursuant to PC Section 851.9 can commence. 5/28/11

The client had to be transferred at the last minute into court and completed a pretty thorough examination by the judge. In annulments a clients appearance... Continue reading

Hello-The only way to use the program is to file a petition of factual innocence pursuant to Penal Code Section 851.8 or under the Government code if the arrest is older than 5-10 years. The website:hwgreen.net discusses this area of court relief in great detail. Please feel free to send me an e-mail with your phone number. Sincerely HG esq. 101/11/10
