I was charge for possession marijuana back in November and they offered me to take a class for it which I miss recently. It was my first offense.
Now I am in a sticky situation will this affect me in the near future on finding a job after college? BTW I'm in the medical field and have quit smoking prior to that arrest. For personal reason and school. Is there anyway I can get my record expunged?




-Any info would be nice guys.

Only felony convictions.

You'll be ok. Just get with your lawyer. It will cost about $200-$500 to get it expunge. 

You just need to pay the lawyer to see if you can get the class taken again.

Bad timing on my part.

Hopefully things will work out and I get this wipe out.

why did Halle have to let a white man pop it to get an oscar? Why did Denzel have to go crooked before he took it?

if you didnt sell then you good. im bout to go to court in 30 mins for a distribution & possession charge. also a college student (in the engineering field), but since its my first charge as an adult. im most likely good. you shouldnt even trip bro. the system is forgiving.

its just a misdemeanor not a felony.

Depending on what jurisdiction you're in, you may have to wait a couple of years to have your criminal record vacated (otherwise known as "expunged" as these terms are used interchangeably). Having your criminal record vacated means that you can legally state on an application that you have not been convicted of that crime.

I practice in Washington state, but other states tend to have same requirements. Generally, in order qualify, you have to meet the following requirements:

1. No other pending charges against you in any state state or federal court;
2. No other new convictions in any court since the date of your discharge (completed terms of judgment/sentence);
3. The crime was not a "violent offense" or a "crime against person";
4. The crime was not a DUI or a sex offense;
5. Gross misdemeanors- have to wait 5 years after the order of dismissal;
6. Misdemeanors- have to wait 3 years after the order of dismissal;

Usually, a motion for an order to vacate a criminal conviction will run you about $500-$800. I usually charge $600, but you should call around.

Another person caught up in the insane war of drugs that costs the country billions, clogs up the justice system, and hurts otherwise solid citizens of the USA.

Hope you can make the best of it.
