Dismissal of convictions: protective orders.


Existing law allows a person convicted of a criminal offense who has successfully completed the term of probation to, except as specifically exempted and under specified conditions and procedures, petition the court to withdraw their plea of guilty or nolo contendere and enter a plea of not guilty or, if convicted after a plea of not guilty, petition the court to set aside the verdict of guilty and dismiss the accusatory pleading. Under existing law, a person granted relief pursuant to these provisions shall be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense, except as specified. This bill would specify that the dismissal does not release the defendant from the terms and conditions of any criminal protective order that was issued by the court in connection with the case and that those orders remain in full effect until their expiration or until any further order by the court modifying or terminating the order, despite the dismissal of the underlying accusatory pleading.
