Fighting back against Racial Profiling

Anthony Hernandez was arrested and spent a month in custody because of racial profiling and presumptions by the arresting officer. It might have been far worse had it not been for the persistence of his defense attorney, who kept demanding that prosecutors turn over body camera footage of the incident from the arresting officer. Once the officer turned it over to the prosecutor’s office, almost immediately the Sacramento DA dropped the charges. The Vanguard speaks to Attorney Jennifer Mouzis about the arrest and the illegal activities of the Sacramento Police.

Expungements

Expungement Attorney in Sacramento, CA

With the advancement of today’s technology, criminal records can be found quickly and easily, simply by searching for a name and a date of birth via national databases that contain indexed court records.

In the past, criminal records were public information; however, it was not as easily accessible and was usually only obtained by law enforcement officers in cases where prior criminal history was applicable to a current situation.

Employers, professional organizations, and licensing agencies did not have the time nor the manpower to go through hundreds of thousands of criminal court records to see if a person in question had a criminal record among the files.

With the search for criminal records now taking mere moments, agencies can find your criminal record quickly by using simple background check software.

Since criminal records are public information, your record can be found by anyone willing to pay a fee through a background check website.

Getting Criminal Records Expunged Is Simple

While employers and other agencies can easily do background checks on you and locate your California criminal records, it’s just as easy to get those records expunged when you have an experienced attorney on your side.

You are allowed to seek the expungement of your criminal records if the following apply to you:

  • Your probation has been successfully completed 
  • You do not have current criminal charges against you
  • You are not serving time for criminal charges
  • You are not on probation for criminal charges
  • You were not convicted of a serious sexual offense against a child
  • You did not serve time in state prison

When you have your criminal records expunged, employers are unable to use the information against you when determining whether or not to hire you.

It is to your benefit to seek the expungement of any misdemeanor or felony convictions you may have on your criminal record.

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are key differences between a misdemeanor and a felony in the judicial system.

A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense, whereas a felony is a much more serious, usually violent, criminal offense.

Examples of felony violations include:felony violations

  • murder
  • possession of dangerous drugs for sale
  • robberyrape

Examples of misdemeanor violations are:

  • petty theft
  • driving on a suspended license and drunk driving

The essential difference is the severity of punishment.

A felony conviction can lead you in state prison, but a misdemeanor will only have you do time in the local or country jail. A felony can involve a fine up to $10,000 and a sentence of up to life in prison or even the death sentence for special circumstance murder. A misdemeanor is generally punishable by a $1,000 fine and a maximum of one year in count jail.

In addition to the longer punishment, a person convicted of a felony: loses the right to vote, cannot possess firearms, cannot obtain certain licenses, such as a hunting or a fishing license and is also required to disclose a conviction when applying for jobs.
