What is the name of your state? California
Charge happened in California in 1985. I was charged in a sting operation when worked for us postal service. A guy acted as informant to get his own drug charges removed or reduced. I was charged with misdeameanor drug charge(sale of less than a gram of cocaine)Was required to do drug diversion which was completed successfully. Was supposed to be sealed and expunged since I was 1st time offender. Problem is it keeps popping up when I apply for student loan or try to get hired by Federal Government. Is there any hope? How do I get the court documents? Can it still really be expunged? Thanks for any help or advice.
