Even being barely 17 I was arrested as an adult with a class a felony. Sounds ridiculous I know, I was just a kid that stupidly tried drugs. I have recently graduated from UT and always get a shocked response when it looks like I am a hardened criminal. What was I taking an agreement for differed for if it wasn't to take it off my record after completing?
Every employer that has looked at my record has told me that I was wrong, and I was convicted. All they can see plain and clear is that I was arrested for a felony, plead guilty for a felony, and was on probation. Is there a way to have it changed to not be as slanderous?
I have already looked at my record from the tdps. It does not say I was convicted anywhere and never has been, but it does say that I was Arrested for Possession, and Manufacturing(crazy) and I also plead guilty. What should it look like?
