Age has nothing to do with the expungement laws since he was tried as an adult.

In terms of California expungement laws, you cannot go about this alone.  You need a criminal defense attorney who can help him through it -- do not go about alone.  Try www.attorneypages.com and then double check his or her disciplinary record at www.calbar.ca.gov under attorney search.
