Legal Assistance from a San Diego Drug Offense Lawyer
If you have faced a conviction for a drug offense, whether transportation, sales, or possession, the civil consequences can be extremely limiting. Finding a job after being arrested and convicted for any type of drug offense can be very difficult. Many individuals are currently unemployed as a result of the economic downturn, and therefore it may be even more challenging to be competitive in the job market if you have a drug crime conviction that shows up in a background check. Expungement is an option that may be available to you.
Who is eligible to have their drug crime expunged?
As your San Diego drug offense lawyer from Kern Law, APC, I can use my experience to help you through your expungement case. Expungement of a criminal record means that the conviction will be removed from your public record and a prospective employer cannot use this information against you as part of their hiring decision. Interviewers cannot even ask you about this event. California's Penal Code 1203.4 PC authorizes individuals to have their drug offense expunged.
You may be eligible to have your criminal record expunged if you were convicted of either a felony or misdemeanor drug offense. Other criteria include successful completion of probation and no subsequent criminal charges. You may not be entitled to expungement if you were sent to state prison. My firm can assist you through the expungement process to help you get back on your feet. I am a motivated and hard-working attorney who is dedicated to protecting my clients' futures.
