    Default What Will Appear on Your Criminal Record After Expungement

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: CALIFORNIA
    here's the question, if I have a record expunged in calif, I am of the understanding that the record can still be accessed, but shows DISMISSED.
    all the pertinent details of the charge, sentencing etc are available to view, with the final entry being EXPUNGED, dismissed. Am I correct?
    Now this is calif. Am I correct?

    Default Re: Criminal Record Shows Only a Dismissal After Expungement

    The record of conviction will be changed to instead show a dismissal.

    so what's the point... of an expungement in calif. an employer pulls up a court record showing a dismissal of a charge, scrolls down, sees the charge, and the timeline of events, sentencing etc, then the expungement. Calif should seal the record. In calif expungment is an oxymoron concept!!

    Some states don't permit any form of expungement at all. California offers dismissals, and a set of legal protections for those who have obtained a dismissal. Is the cup half empty or half full?
