    The drug case is now deemed a misdemeanor by operation of law, though you still need to petition for it. After reduced you can have it dismissed under 1203.4 of the Penal Code (referred to as expungement, but quite a misnomer). The state prison case is a straight felony now that you went to prison.

    Anthony’s Answer

    You are correct--you should not wait if you have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. You can just walk in and check in with the clerk - usually in the clerk's office, not in the courtroom. But you should doublecheck with your attorney.

    Ok I been investigated since 2011 for a federal crime. Three indictments have taken place for this crime which resulted in a total of 54 people being arrested. It has been a year and 3 months since the last indictment. How long can this go on. Why...

    Anthony’s Answer

    The investigation can't go on longer than the statute of limitations for the crime being investigated. Many crimes have statutes of limitation longer than others, and certain crimes are "continuing" crimes - your best bet is to hire a federal criminal defense attorney to discuss all your options, potential exposure and defenses.

    Anthony’s Answer

    You have to file a petition to get it dismissed. Under 1203.4 of the Penal Code, if you are not under any criminal justice supervision, have no pending cases and did not violate the terms of your probation you are entitled to a dismissal. You can try to do it yourself or you can hire an attorney to help you.
