Why would you want an expungment? An expungment of your record is in the simplest terms a second chance at a clean record. Under Penal Code 1203.4 and 1203.4(a) Give the court the authority to dismiss your case if your have complied with all the terms of your probation or if there is other good cause to dismiss your case.

Under Penal Code 17, if your case was a felony your case can be reduced to a misdemeanor before being having your case dismissed.

If your case is expunged it becomes and arrest that did not end in conviction. Legally you can say that you have never been convicted of a crime. You can also make a petition to have your arrest record sealed and the police reports surrounding your convictions redacted.
