There is no "expungement" law in California. What many people (incorrectly) call an expungement is actually a retroactive dismissal under Penal Code 1203.4. If granted, it doesn't expunge or erase anything from your record. It just adds a notation that your conviction was subsequently dismissed. It helps for employment reasons, but it still remains on your record and counts as a prior conviction.
Contact a good local criminal defense attorney to discuss three things: reduction to a misdemeanor (if the charges qualify), dismissal pursuant to Penal Code 1203.4 and/or a certificate of rehabilitation and application to the Governor for a pardon. (You're a bit early for the certificate of rehabilitation - typically that's a minimum of 10 years from conviction). If you want to pursue a pardon in the future, then you actually may not want to reduce your felonies, as the Governor grants pardons on felonies, not misdemeanors.See question
I mean like if you buy a new car and the police pull you over for having no license plates. What code section does that violate?
Since you posted this with the tag of DUI, I can only assume that you (or someone) was pulled over in a new vehicle that didn't yet have tags and that led to a DUI arrest.
The dealer should have affixed a copy of the temporary registration to the window - whether or not the police had sufficient reason to initiate the traffic stop (was it solely for the license plates or were there other alleged violations as well) is something your attorney can explore. If the officers didn't act reasonably and/or there wasn't a clear violation, then all evidence may be suppressed.
Search issues are very fact-specific, so you'll need an attorney to review all the evidence.See question

This isn't my field of law, but you haven't specified a practice area. In order to reclassify it so that attorneys that practice in this field can see it and respond, i had to enter an answer. I have put it under the child support category. Hopefully you'll get responses now.See question

I posted this question before, but the reply I got did not answer my question... Spirit Airlines caused a 35 hour delay of my luggage, which made me miss an important biz meeting, and I also incurred substantial expenses as a result. I filed a cla...
The terms of your contract will govern. If the damages are limited to replacement value up to a certain dollar amount, but not any collateral or incidental damages, then you don't have a viable lawsuit. They don't HAVE TO offer you anything. As a matter of good PR, they might, but there is nothing that says the have to give you anything.
If you want to sue them in small claims, you bear the burden of proving that the delay in the luggage caused you to miss your meeting. I'm not sure how that happened.See question

There are only so many seats in a theater, concert hall, sports stadium, etc. If they sell out, they sell out, no matter where/how they're sold.See question
My life was threatened within 3 text messages from a tenant at a complex I have lived at. Is this a Federal offense that I would go to the FBI with for prosecution ?, Attorney General of the state? or Sheriff's dept? DA's office thanks
The FBI won't mess with this. Report it to your local law enforcement agency - either the city police or the County sheriff, depending on which agency covers where you live.See question
