Offense occurred in the state of NY.
CPL 220.03 -
Received an ACD. I was required to do 25 hours of service, which I have already completed. I have about 4 more months until the dismissal "ripens."
The question on the FAFSA only asks about drug convictions. In an ACD, there is no entry into a guilty plea so I was able to truthfully say no to those questions. However, I have four more months left of this pending drug charge -- will this affect my ability to receive federal student loans?
