Our skilled expungement lawyers at Wallin & Klarich have been representing clients in post-conviction matters for more than 35 years. Let’s examine whether you are eligible for an expungement if you have a robbery conviction on your record.
What are the Benefits of an Expungement?
An expungement under California Penal Code Section 1203.4 is a way to clean your criminal record by having your prior criminal conviction dismissed and set aside.
There are a number of benefits to having your conviction expunged, including:
- You will no longer have to tell potential employers that you have been convicted of a crime, and
- State licensing boards will not be able to deny you a state license based on your conviction
Therefore, getting your conviction expunged may make it easier for you to obtain employment and advance in your career.
Can I Have a Robbery Conviction Expunged?
To be eligible for an expungement in California, you must:
- Not have served a state prison sentence – you may be eligible if you were sentenced to county jail, probation, a fine or a combination of those sentences
- Have fulfilled all the conditions of your probation if you were granted probation, and
- Not have any pending criminal charges against you
Both first degree robbery and second degree robbery are serious felony offenses that are punishable by prison time. If you served time in state prison, you are not eligible to have your robbery conviction expunged.
However, if you received probation or another form of alternative sentencing in lieu of a prison sentence for your robbery conviction, you may be eligible to seek an expungement under PC 1203.4.
