What is a "dismissal" of a conviction?

If you have ever been convicted of a misdemeanor in California, California law (Penal Code Section 1203.4) now permits persons convicted of most misdemeanors to get their conviction dismissed. This law includes DUIs, (driving with a blood level alcohol of .08% or higher), even with prior DUI convictions!

When the court grants an expungement petition, the judge withdraws your guilty or no contest (nolo contendere) plea, or verdict of guilt if you went to trial, and enters a not guilty plea. Then the court will set aside and dismiss the conviction. From that point forward, you are no longer considered convicted of the offense. Your record will be changed to show a dismissal rather than a conviction.

As you know, employers conduct comprehensive background checks. With competition for jobs being so fierce, you certainly don't want a criminal conviction to prevent you from getting or keeping your dream job.

Here's great news: under most circumstances, private employers cannot ask you about any convictions dismissed under Penal Code Section 1203.4. So when applying for a job in the private sector, you generally do not have to disclose a conviction if it was dismissed or expunged. 2 California Code of Regulations Section 7287.4(d) prohibits an employer from asking about a dismissed conviction.

More great news: dismissing a conviction typically takes approximately only one to two months!

This is what a typical order granting dismissal looks like:
