How long does something stay on your criminal record?
Contrary to popular belief, your Los Angeles criminal record does not disappear on its own. If you are unsure of what is on your record, you can call the court where you were convicted and ask or an expungement attorney will be able to find that information when you retain their services. Once you are convicted, the conviction stays on your record for life, unless you have it expunged. The Los Angeles courts retain court records for nearly 30 years; after that, information about your case is stored at the California Department of Justice.
What is the law for expungement?
The court authority to expunge a criminal record comes from California Penal Code section 1203.4.
