Expungement of an old Oceanside or any North County Drug Offense is possible. It depends on the sentence in the drug case. If it was a misdemeanor, you can almost always have a misdemeanor expunged especially if you successfully completed probation. You may also get an expungement for nearly all felony drug convictions as long as you did not go to State Prison and completed probation. An additional requirement is that you not have any pending cases or be on probation on any other case.
Many felony drug charges may also be reduced to misdemeanors and expunged so you will not have a felony record. Possession for sale, transportation and possession of some controlled substances may not be reduced to misdemeanors, but still may be expunged if you completed probation. There are other ways to improve your record if you did go to State Prison, call us about a Certificate of Rehabilitation. There is something that can be done for every case.
