Expunging arrest (without conviction) in California

  1. Anyone know how to go about petitioning to seal and destroy my arrest record in California (Santa Clara County), or how to petition for factual innocence?

    I have an arrest without conviction from 17 years ago, and my nursing school said I may not be able to do the clinicals.

    I am thinking you will need a lawyer, I understand Cali has become really difficult on this subject recently.
