What is a Felony Reduction?
Reduction of a felony to a misdemeanor can have long lasting positive effects on your life. Some jobs will not hire you if you have a felony record and you may be denied certain rights that non-felons enjoy. You may be denied a state license or accreditation or not be allowed to adopt a child. If the conviction is reduced to a misdemeanor, it is a misdemeanor for all purposes. This means that all penalties associated with having a felony record will be vanquished and all rights bestowed on non-felons will be restored.
What is Penal Code 17b?
Under Penal Code 17(b), the court has discretion to reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor. This can happen even years after the date of conviction. If you have an old felony conviction or even a new felony conviction, you may be eligible to have it reduced.
In order for your conviction to be eligible for 17(b) relief, it must be a wobbler. A wobbler is an offense that can be charged either as a misdemeanor or felony. There are several wobbler offenses in California and your conviction may be eligible. Is Your Felony A Wobbler?
