How Long Does an Expungement Take?

With your information prepared well before the application is processed, most expungements for misdemeanors can take between four to eight weeks to complete from the time the application is filed. Most expungements of felony convictions can also take four to eight weeks to complete from the time the application is filed. The process for sealing a juvenile's record is not the same, and may have a different timeline.

What Advice Can You Give Someone Facing a Criminal Charge?

A criminal defendant should not talk about their case with anyone except their competent legal representative. Attorney Silldorf is his clients' best friend and advocate during this time and will handle each case with professionalism and discretion. Make sure you are careful about who you share details with and remember you have the right to remain silent.

What's the Difference Between a Felony & a Misdemeanor?

The main difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is the length of sentencing: while a misdemeanor's maximum sentence is one year, felonies carry sentences of one year or more. Misdemeanors are generally not very serious crimes, such as vandalism, petty theft, and reckless driving. Generally, misdemeanors can be taken care of with community service, fines, or minimal jail time. Felonies are much more serious crimes, and they include murder, grand theft auto, and sexual assault.

Are There Alternative Penalties For Drug Crimes?

In California, there are several alternative punishments to jail for drug crimes. Prop 36 makes it possible to undergo drug treatment instead of going to prison for nonviolent drug possession crimes. For first time drug offenders, there is an option known as deferred entry of judgment. This allows for 6 months of treatment and a year of good behavior to get your charge dropped. Finally, drug courts are also an option that can help you. Ask a San Diego criminal defense lawyer about which option is right for you.

Why Should I Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Oftentimes, an individual may wonder why they need to hire a lawyer when there are public defenders are available. While there are many highly qualified and capable public defenders, it is your right to choose your own attorney to ensure that you feel 100% confident in your legal advocacy.
