At the age of 21 in 2013 My first offense was being busted at a checkpoint, with over 100 bricks of marijuana. Thus leading to a federal felony. I did my time, and got early termination for my parole in 2015. This is a non-violent drug crime and I want to know if it is eligible for expungment. I paid the price and made significant changes in my life putting this behind me. However it is almost impossible to do so on paper. it's brought up in front of me repeatedly as it's affecting me and im being silently judged all the time from employers and the like it is getting tiresome. I would just like my due process. Thank you
There are no federal expungements, unfortunately. There is a bill before Congress (again), so lobbying a change in law is the way to approach this.
This answer DOES NOT create an attorney-client relationship, and DOES NOT address the many specific and confidential variables needed to provide adequate legal advice. This answer is ONLY general guidance.
There is no procedure to expunge a federal conviction.
