I pleaded nolo contendere for a misdemeanor (<1oz) possession charge 1999, I complied with all of my probation conditions, paid my fines. In a recent background search for a weapons permit the charge is coming back as a nolo to a felony. What can i do to get this corrected?
While this is something you can do yourself, it will go much more smoothly and be a lot easier to hire an attorney and let him/her handle it for you.
