Reduce Misdemeanor To Infraction
Penal Code 17(d) allows both prosecutors and courts the ability to charge a Misdemeanor as an Infraction. It even allows the court to reduce your Misdemeanor to an Infraction years after the conviction.
What is a Misdemeanor?
A Misdemeanor is a crime more serious than an infraction, but less serious than a felony. Misdemeanors are punishable by a maximum of one year in county jail or a minimum of probation with fines.
What is an Infraction?
An Infraction is the lowest crime you can be convicted of. Most traffic tickets, for example, are infractions. If you were convicted of an infraction, you stand the best chance at expunging your record. If you were convicted of a Misdemeanor Wobblet, you could reduce your misdemeanor to an infraction.
What is a Wobblet?
A Wobblet is a Misdemeanor that could also be charged as an Infraction. Penal Code 17d gives the courts the power to charge your misdemeanor as an infraction instead. It also gives courts the power to reduce a misdemeanor to an infraction well after you were convicted and your case was closed.
