You can petition to have the infraction expunged pursuant to 1203.4
No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
Technically, an infraction would stay on your record indefinitely just like any other conviction. You have all of the same remedies available to you that you would for any other offense, like an expungement under PC 1203.4.
