          What Does It Mean To Have A Criminal Record Expunged?

          To have a record expunged means to have it erased. In California, however, there is no actual expungement in the regular use of the word; rather, you can petition for a dismissal. If your petition for a dismissal were to be granted, then the language on your Department of Justice report would be changed from reading “convicted” to reading “dismissed.”
