My question involves criminal records for the state of: California
I am trying to expunge a 38 year old conviction (felony?) and am unable to get the details needed to file a PC 17(b) petition to get the felony reduced, if necessary, and a PC 1203.4 petition for expungement. The court has no records (despite my paying for an archive search) and neither the probation dept. or DA does either. Any suggestions? Will the court accept petitions with incomplete data? I'm at a loss as to the best course of action to take.
