I was involved in a potential felony drug possession case last year, but the charges were recently dismissed. I do know that the arrest will still show on my record, and the case status would say "dismissed".
However, of course I'd prefer to not have anything on my record at all, especially when applying for jobs. Legally, in my state, employers cannot use dimissed cases as a grounds for termination, but I'd rather not take the chance, if possible.
How does expungement work within California? From what I've read, I essentially fill out a request form and send it to the court? Is there anything I can do to make it more likely to have my record expunged? Do I have to wait longer until requesting expungement?
