    Default Criminal Justice Careers With a Misdemeanor Record

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana

    Hello, I don't know if this is in the right section, but I've been looking for the answer to my question with no avail. I was charged with two class A misdemeanors for possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia and it gave me a motivation to change and take a path in the criminal justice field. Whether this is possible to pursue as a major I am unsure. If not then I suppose I have no choice but to take another route, but I was just curious to know if it was still possible. I have never gotten in legal trouble so I am new to the whole thing.


    edit: and also, I served 2 days in jail, but it says one year with 4 days to serve. But the judge never mentioned another date, nor is there another date given to me anywhere. And he said to just serve for the weekend, which I did. Do I have to go for another 2? I hope not.

    With the actual conviction on your record you would have to seek an expungement/pardon. Ill look more into the charges to see if they can in fact be expunged/sealed in indiana. However even with an expungement/pardon your record can still be viewed by the hiring agencies. how long ago has it been since you were charged and convicted?

    In terms of expungement, see this thread.

    Talk to your probation officer about what additional obligations you may have under your sentence.
