My question involves criminal records for the state of: California
When I was 19 years old I was arrested for a felony evading, but charged with a misdemeanor evading given it was my first offense ever other than fix it tickets. I am now 21 going on 22 and have one more school year left to obtain my degree in criminal justice I was planning on attending the police academy after graduation. I will be 23 almost 24 when I finish the academy. I plan on getting my record expunged just to show I took the effort to remove it from my record even though the departments I apply at can still view it on my background.
My question is: Do I have a chance at obtaining a position as a police officer? or did I blow my chances by being young and dumb way back when?
Any advice/information would be greatly appreciated.
