    Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act has been a crime for many years, so that law was in fact in effect at the time of your arrest one year ago. The charge of "Forged Prescription for a Controlled Substance," under RCW 69.50.403, is a Class C Felony punishable by a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    "John School" in most courts is actually a legal agreement equivalent to a "Stipulation and Continuance" or some other "diversion."

Also, even after this case is dismissed, the Washington State Patrol may consider it "adverse to the defendant" and therefore not eligible to have completely removed from your record. You should consult with an attorney before making your decision.

Although you would be asking to have the law enforcement agencies delete "nonconviction data," certain types of diversions are considered "dispositions adverse to the defendant" and therefore not eligible for deletion under the law.

    Has your partner had contact with law enforcement in Washington State since 2003 (ie, issued a traffic ticket, etc?). They typically tell people stopped for infractions about in-state warrants, even if they turn out to be non-extraditable. You husband could also request his record from the Washington State Patrol. They might show information about the case, such as a possible dismissal. I also agree that calling the Grant County District Court is a good idea. They might be able to tell you...

    A Pre-trial Diversion Agreement through Friendship Diversion Services is typically a form of a "Stipulation and Continuance." This may be considered "adverse to the defendant" and difficult to have removed from the record maintained by the Washington State Patrol. You should consult with an attorney.
