Will the remedy remove my registration requirement?
- Expungement—YES, an expungement will remove your arson registration requirement if:
- Your conviction was for a misdemeanor arson offense AND you get the conviction dismissed under California’s expungement statute.
- Certificate of Rehabilitation—YES, this will remove your arson registration requirement, even if you had a lifetime registration requirement!
- Pardon—YES, this will remove your arson registration requirement.
- BUT remember, a pardon is very difficult to get and granted only in “extraordinary circumstances.”
