Getting a felony expunged is determined by the law of the state. Some states do not allow expungement, no matter what the offense is.

if a felony is expunged, is the strike also expunged?

If a judge reduces a felony to a misdemeanor., is it the same as being expunged? is the strike also expunged or reduced?

haveing a felony expunged and reduced are two diferent things that occur at two diferent points of the legal process.

If its reduced to a misdemeanor, you no longer are being charged with a felony so the strike (if you were convicted) like the felony, it would disappear because you were never charged with one.

My felony was expunged, but the state of arizona will not let me become a police officer. What can I do?

I had a felony from 2001 that I got expunged last year. I contacted the AZ P.O.S.T and they still said that I could not become a police officer. Are there any appeals I can file? Is there anything other hope for me?

Expungement just gets it off the public record.

No police department in the US can hire a convicted felon. You are still a convicted felon.
To be able to apply you need to get the conviction overturned. That is found not guilty.
I'm not going to explain the appeals process, it is to long and if you had time to expunge way to late.

The other way to be not guilty is to get a pardon from the Governor of the state that you were convicted in or a pardon from the President.

Take it out on the shyster lawyer that charged you and did not explain the difference.
