    Default Can You Expunge Your Record After a Finding of Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: CA
    After restoration of sanity, can a NGRI acquitee file for an expungement? There are two parts to this plea. 1)plea of guilty 2) not guilty by reason of insanity. For a regular expungement one must not have been found guilty. Does NGRI count as a not guilty? Also is there some type of rehabilitation certificate or pardon that NGRI's can possess?If the case can be expunged can the records then be sealed? Do licensing boards honor these procedures?

    California's expungement statute does not encompass findings of not guilty by reason of insanity. See People v. Morrison (1984) 162 Cal.App.3d 995, 999.
