    Default Re: The Not So Well Deferred Adjudication

    I cannot for the life of me think of how you got into the military with a felony on your record! You may want to have an attorney assist you. It may well be that while the initial offense was filed as a felony, the deferred adjudication reduced it.

    I "have a friend" who had a deferred felony conviction from late 90s in Texas and about 6 years ago got it expunged. If you completed all the conditions, then I believe all you need is a lawyer to fill out some paperwork and do some lawyer magic and they can get it off your record. Send me a PM and I can refer you to "my friend's" lawyer who accomplished this previously.

    It is possible to petition to have the record of a successfully completed deferred disposition sealed after a felony conviction, but for expungement it is necessary to first obtain a pardon.

    Max age in NJ is 35.
    Why would that matter?

    Some states have laws that specifically address the issue of felonies and peace officers.

    For example in California, any person convicted of a felony (or of a crime in another jurisdiction that would be a felony in California) is prohibited from employment as a California peace officer [
    Cal. Govt. Code 1029(a)].

    With few exceptions, this prohibition holds even if the conviction was sealed, expunged, or set aside. It may also apply to any convictions that were subsequently reduced to a
    misdemeanor occurring on or after January 1, 2004.

    Perhaps it would be better to see if the state in question has a similar law. The OP may wish to call that state's Peace Officer Standards and Training agency and inquire as to what state laws address this area.
