  1. In order to reduce a misdemeanor to an infraction, it first of all has to be a crime that CAN be reduced to an infraction. 245 is not one of them.


  2. Typically in order to obtain an infraction, your attorney must negotiate with the prosecutor prior to you pleading guilty and obtain an agreement to reduce a case to an infraction at a future date or at the time you enter the plea. There is no such thing as a P.C. 245 as an infraction.


  3. Probably not
