A person can set aside their drug-related offense if they were not previously convicted of any other drug-related offense and the court placed them on probation for the offense without entering a judgment of guilt, instead deferred the guilt. Once your drug offense has been set aside, the records pertaining to the case will be sealed from inspection by the public. The Department of State Police will retain a “nonpublic” version of the records, which it can share with other law enforcement or criminal justice agencies (including courts and prosecutors) under limited circumstances. The only time the records can be used against you is if you are employed or want to be employed by the Department of Corrections, a law enforcement agency, a court, or a prosecutor’s office.
With more than 80 percent of employers conducting background checks, setting aside is a great investment.
The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared. See the FAQ section to see how long this procedure typically takes and answers to other questions.
