Some crimes can be both misdemeanors and felonies and can be reduced at various stages of the proceedings. If it is after judgment it can be done as part of an expungement motion. The cost depends on the attorney and the complexity of the issue including whether the DA will likely oppose the motion.

You need to hire a lawyer to file and argue a 17b motion. It's not something you want to do by yourself.
