My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
I am currently facing one felony drug possesion charge and one misdemeanor drug possesion charge in the state of Georgia in Gwinnett County. My attorney is arranging a first offender status on the charges and I am facing five years of probation. I want to go to medical school in the next two years and I want to know all possibilities and obstacles involved. I am already seeking the option for expungement, but it appears that this is in the hands of the prosecution and the judge. What are the options I have? Also, I need to know what the possibilities are for getting into medical school with such a record, expunged or not. Can anyone offer advice on this matter? My attorney is not yeilding sufficient help in this matter, which is unfortunate. I welcome input from anyone who is or has been involved in a similar matter.
