    Default How Do I Remove a Felony (Grand Theft 8 Years Ago) from My Background

    My question involves setting aside or expungement for the state of: California. I was convicted of grand theft in 2002. I served 3 yrs probation and spent a week and a half in jail. I have no other records of any form. Never have been in trouble before or after the conviction. I never paid back restitution because it is too large for me to afford ($40k). Is there anyway I can have this expunged or set aside so that it is no longer a hindrance in job opportunities or etc?

    If you were ordered to pay restitution, I would suspect there is no way to have it expunged. Generally part of allowing an expungement is that all penalties imposed are completed.
    I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
