    Eligibility for Felony Reductions in California

    When convicted of a felony, many civil rights and other privileges are taken away, and unless you’re able to obtain a felony reduction, pardon, or some other post-conviction relief, you will be branded as a “felon” for the rest of your life. A restriction of particular importance to many felons is that felons are not permitted to purchase, own, or possess firearms—doing so is typically a felony in itself. Fortunately, California law permits for felony reductions in cases where you would qualify for an expungement (i.e., you did not go to state prison), and the offense is a “Wobbler” under California law.

    What is a “Wobbler”?

    A “Wobbler” is a term frequently used in California criminal law to describe a crime that could be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, meaning, the prosecutor has discretion on the severity of the charges they choose bring against you. Typically, a prosecutor will consider the specific facts and circumstances of the case, along with your criminal history when making this determination. There are many criminal offenses which are considered “Wobblers” in California, ranging from violent crimes such as assault with a deadly weapon to white collar crimes like money laundering.

    Effects of Felony Reductions

    Successful reduction of a felony in California results in your case being reduced to a misdemeanor, which, assuming you have not been convicted of another felony, has the following benefits:

    • You may truthfully say that you have never been convicted of a felony on employment, housing, and loan applications;
    • Restoration of your California Firearm Rights (unless taken away for another reason);
    • You may serve on a California jury; and
    • You can obtain many professional licenses which were previously unavailable.

    Obtaining a California Felony Reduction

    If you have a felony conviction on your record in California which did not result in prison time, and is on the list of “Wobbler” offenses below, it is critical for you to take steps to have your felony reduced and expunged. Reducing and/or expunging a felony conviction in California can take time, and you do not want to miss out on an opportunity in life for something that could have been taken care of. Waiting until you need your criminal record corrected is typically too late to make a difference.
