Good morning,

A drug conviction, unless it involves the conviction of drug trafficking,by itself, is not an aggravated felony.

I wish you the best in 2011.

I was convicted in 1996 in southern district of florida, on drug related charges.... how can i find out the exact charges.

Expert:  LawTalk replied 5 years ago.
Good afternoon,

You can simply go to the court where you were convicted, go to the criminal court clerk's office and ask to see the case file relating to your conviction. The file will have the judgment of the court filed there.

I wish you the best in 2011.

Good afternoon,

You can call a local legal copy service who will go to the court and copy the records for you and mail them to you.

Try googling legal copy service---such as "legal copy service Miami", and you will find companies in the area who will help you out.

I wish you well.
