I was charged with Drug possession and my lawyer had me enter a Drug court which has two programs "plea in" and "deferred". I was selected for the shorter duration "Deferred Prosecution" route which placed my case on the administrative docket. I have now graduated and charges dismissed. I received a "Order of Dismissal" That states:
"Order of Dismissal
The above-referenced Defendant having completed all requirements of Deferred Prosecution in accordance with the conditional order of dismissal entered in this matter, the above case(s) are hereby Dismissed WITH Prejudice."
Done this 18th day of January, 2013.
Then it is signed by the Circuit court judge."
So am I essentially restored to a normal citizen? I don't want to attempt to purchase a gun if I am misunderstanding this.
