  • Hint

It is a common misconception that felony convictions cannot be expunged. As long as the requirements are met for expungement, felonies are not necessarily excluded simply because they are felonies.

  • Hint

There are 2 types of probation: Formal and Informal. Formal probation requires that you check in monthly with your probation officer while informal probation is monitored by the court. With informal probation you would have had to complete certain obligations such as community service or pay a fine and the progress of these would be reported by you to the Judge or clerk’s office.

  • Hint

A probation violation requires a finding after a probation violation hearing or an admission to a violation of probation by the defendant. Grounds for violation would be picking up a new case/arrest or failing to complete an obligation ordered by the court.

  • Hint

A misdemeanor is defined as an offense where the maximum amount of time a defendant can be sentenced to is up to 1 year in the county jail.

  • Hint

If you were placed on probation and probation has not yet ended, you may petition the court to terminate your probation early and you would then be eligible for expungement.

  • Hint

Violating probation does not necessarily exclude you from expungement eligibility. We would need to provide the Judge with a declaration of good cause to establish why granting the petition would be in the interests of justice.

  • Hint

The sentencing date is the date that you entered your guilty or no contest plea and the Judge imposed the punishment.
