    Default Can a Federal Drug Misdemeanor Be Expunged

    In March of 2005 I was convicted on a single count of possession of Fentanyl, a controlled substance. It was a misdemeanor conviction and I had no priors. I was sentenced to 30 months probation which is will end next month. According to my public defender, there was no chance of pre-trial diversion and I was fortunate that it was not deemed a felony charge. This was in part due to the fact that I self-reported, sent myself to treatment, cooperated with the investigators, plead guilty and have behaved according to the probationary guidelines since my conviction.

    I called my public defender this week to ask him about having my record expunged and he was unable to give me a definitive answer. He stated that he lacked the knowledge of the procedure and/or possibility for expungement in this instance.

    So my question is this, is it possible to have my record expunged and if so how does that take place

    Thanks.

    If you were under 21 at the time of the offense, see 18 USC 3607.
