In 1993 I was charged felony w/ Marajuana Manufacturing. The charges were dropped to misdemeanor possession and I pleaded no-lo. Almost exactly 1 yr later in 94 or so I was caught with some friends smoking marajuana and although I did not personally have anything illegal on me, the officer had other police witnesses who saw me smoke and I recieved another misdemeanor poss. charge. A few months later in 94' I missed a meeting w/ my probation officer and was charged with another misdemeanor. I realize I broke the law but for the life of me I can't understand how I'm supposed to pay for these minor infractions for the rest of my life. I served time, paid fines, and a successfully completed the Drug and Alcohol awareness programs. I just had a good job offer withdrawn because they found my record and I didn't disclose it on the application because I thought those records were sealed in GA after 7 yrs. Does anyone know if these records are going to show up forever when employers check my background? Any chance of my getting these expunged? How in the hell am I supposed to find a job when any employer that sees my record is going to assume I'm some criminal drug addict, which I most definitely am not. Where do I go from here? Thank you for any helpful responses.
