How can you appeal to have a strike stricken?

He has a previous case in 2002 of a similar nature. I am interested in learning: (1) How long do you have to wait before you can appeal to have a strike removed from your record? (2) What would be the appropriate forms and penal codes?

    You cannot appeal to have a strike stricken. Either the case was a strike or not. The only exception may be a 422 conviction, threats, which could be reduced to a misdemeanor after successful completion of probation. Burglary of a house is a straight felony and does not reduce to a misdemeanor.
