My boyfriend was unfortunately in the car with someone who got pulled over for having their license on incorrectly. The police searched the car and found a grinder and even though it belonged to the driver, my boyfriend received a ticket for possession of drug parapharnelia. He paid the ticket on Monday afternoon, but we since learned about the option of deferred adjudication. Is it too late to try and request this? If so are there any other options to get this off of his record. He just graduated college and is getting ready to apply for jobs.
He might want to also go back and talk with the court clerk or judge where he paid his ticket to see what his options are.

Your boyfriend may still be able to file a Motion for New Trial or even appeal the ticket to another court. Such depends on the court the ticket was in. You need to consult an attorney familiar with the court the ticket is in to determine whether he has any of these options available.
