How do you clean a felony from your record?
Many criminal convictions can be cleared from an individual's criminal record. This means, under certain circumstances, an individual may ask the court to erase a conviction from your permanent record, in which case, subsequent courts and law enforcement officials may not have access to certain elements of your criminal past. Not everything can be cleared and there are different steps that you must take in order to have the chance to get your conviction cleared. As a general rule, you must have finished your probation term and not have gotten in anymore trouble with the law before being considered for this.

What is the difference between appeals courts and first instance courts?
The difference is the type of jurisdiction they exercise. "First instance" courts, or courts of original jurisdiction, are trial courts that determine guilt or innocence (for example) by looking at evidence, hearing testimony, and listening to attorneys' arguments and theories. In criminal cases, the defendant has a constitutional right to a jury trial, but may choose a bench trial (heard by a single judge). The jury (or the judge, in a bench trial) are "finders of fact" who determine the credibility of witnesses and evidence, and decide whether the prosecution has proven it's case "beyond a reasonable doubt." Criminal trial courts issue guilty or not guilty verdicts (and variations thereof) on the charges under consideration. In the federal court system, US District Courts are "first instance" or trial courts for most general civil and criminal suits. Appeals courts have appellate jurisdiction. They only hear cases where the losing party alleges a problem occurred in the trial that could have resulted in an unfair or wrong verdict. Appeals courts use a panel of judges (often three) in place of a jury, and do not consider trial evidence in their decision. They automatically stipulate the facts of the case being reviewed are valid, and only rule on serious procedural errors or determine whether an issue or issues in the case conflict with state/federal or constitutional law. They do not decide whether the defendant is guilty or innocent; their responsibility is to ensure the defendant received a fair trial. In the federal court system, the US Courts of Appeals Circuit Courts are intermediate appeals courts (between US District Courts and the Supreme Court), while the Supreme Court of the United States is the highest appeals court.

District Court Judges US District Courts (judges)......................678 US District Courts (magistrates)*.............523 FT/48 PT = 24 FTE Approximate total...............................1,201 * Magistrates occupy a lower judicial role than judges in US District Courts. District Court Judges appoint magistrates to eight-year terms; they do not hold lifetime appointments like other Article III judges. US District Courts have one judge per case. General Information US District Courts are the point of entry to the federal judicial system for most cases of general jurisdiction. The District Courts are trial courts, meaning the judge or jury act as "triers of fact." They review evidence and listen to testimony and arguments in a criminal or civil trial in an attempt to determine whether the prosecution (or plaintiff) has proven his or her case to the degree required by the type of trial being heard. In criminal cases, the prosecution must convince the judge or jury that the evidence proves guilt "beyond a reasonable doubt." The standard of proof is lower in a civil case, where the plaintiff is only required to demonstrate that the accusation is "more likely than not."
