I was convicted last Aug for a gross misdemeanor "Using Deadly Weapon" In Benton Co. WA. It was a lame case where I was conceal carring a side arm and had an altercation with a neighbor that was attacking my children while I was away from home. (Only words used no actions). Judge didnt want to hear the case and preferred a deferment but prosecutor would let it go. I was given no jail time, $800 in fines, surrendered my side arm and 2 yrs probation. Since conviction I am unable to secure a job due to background checks. So my question is: Is it possible to go before a judge and get my probation dismissed and file for Expungement before my 2 yrs is up? I have not had any other issues with the law. If so what forms would I need to file.
Thanks for any insight.
