Sealing or Expungement of Minor in Possession of Alcohol or Marijuana
Minor possession of alcohol or marijuana charges can have a negative impact on many areas of your life, affecting your future employment opportunities, your entry into college, your ability to get your driver’s license, and even on your eligibility for applying for Federal Student Financial Aid for college. Depending upon your eligibility, Michael T. Kossen P.C. may be able to help you get your criminal records sealed or expunged if you’re a minor found in possession of alcohol or marijuana in Colorado so that you can put your past mistakes behind you and begin focusing on the future that lies ahead of you.
Are All Minor in Possession Charges Eligible for Sealed Records?
Usually, the court will automatically seal your records once your minor in possession case has been dismissed or if you’re found not guilty at trial. This may involve you completing a Deferred Prosecution or a Deferred Judgment/Sentence or successfully completing all of your sentence terms if it was your first minor in possession conviction. However, if you pled guilty, you may be eligible to petition the court to have your record expunged or sealed after a year if you haven’t been arrested for, charged with, or been convicted of any other crime during that time. You also cannot have any outstanding legal fines or fees associated with your conviction in order to be considered eligible.
