Vista Felony Reduction Means No Felony Record

On Behalf of | Dec 24, 2013

Felony reduction to a misdemeanor is one of the best things you can do to help clean up your record in Vista Courts or any Court in California.  Once reduced, you are considered never to have had a feloiny and may be eligible to even own a firearm again.   Nearly every felony that is punishable by up to 1 year in county jail as well as a possible state prison sentence can be reduced to a misdemeanor.  At the same time you request the reduction, you may request expuyngement of the offense if you are no longer on probation. 

The procedure for reduction involoves the filing of a motion inb Court, serving the District Attorney (D.A.) and setting a hearing date, usually 4 to 8 weeks away.  the D.A. can file a response either no oppose it or object.  At the hearing, the Court will have read all moving papers, listen to any oral argument and can either grant or deny the motion.  It is important to include in your motion why it is important to you, what you have accomplished since the conviction, letters of reference, future goals and attach any proof of your accomjplishments like certifications, education etc.

It is important toi have an attorney familiar with not only the law, what is needed, but also know the local Judges and D.A.s and their idiosyncracies.  At Christoph Law Offices, we have handled felony reductions in the Vista Courts for over 30 years.  Call 760-670-3885 for a free consultation and evaluation of your case.
