How to Reduce a Felony to a Misdemeanor

There are several ways to reduce a felony conviction to a misdemeanor. It’s VERY important that you use the correct method for whatever your specific goal is.

For example, a felony reduction under Penal Code, § 17 will, in many cases, restore your gun rights, whereas a felony reduction under Penal Code, § 1170.18, will NOT restore your gun rights. If you seek to restore your firearm rights, our law firm has a nationally recognized expertise in this area. Please obtain our Gun Rights Restoration Review & Plan.

If you were granted probation in a felony case, Penal Code, §17, allows you to return to court after successfully completing probation, and petition the judge to reduce your felony conviction to a misdemeanor.

If you were sentenced to state prison as opposed to being granted probation, you may be able to reduce your felony under Penal Code, § 1170.18 (Prop 47 “The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act”) but you need to act prior to its expiration on November 4, 2022).  

If your felony conviction was for a marijuana offense, the passage of Proposition 64, makes it possible to reduce many marijuana felonies to misdemeanors.
