How is a ticket on the parkway federal jurisdiction?
Did he enter a plea in federal court?
it is a national park and is federal property
it is not on his state record
OK, so he was in the park.
no we paid the fine via a check through snail mail
it was given to him by a park ranger
Unfortunately, the answer is simple...there is no mechanism to have a federal conviction expunged.
one second please...
in what instance will this show up if any on a criminal background
If someone runs a complete background check (as opposed to a state background) it will likely show up.
You can check to see what will show up on a complete background check here:
The process is slow and can take a while, but it is the only sure-fire way to see what a background check will reveal.
This is basically the same process the Navy will do.
my son is entering the Navy and his recruiter says not to divulge this info because it is a state background check do have any knowledge of this type situation
That is correct, the state background checks will not uncover it, since they only check for state convictions.
If the recruiter said not to disclose it, then you don't need to.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
what is the formal term for this charge. is it a felony, misdemeanor, etc
misdemeanor. Simple possession, in federal court, is a misdemeanor.
even though it was a ticket and not a police report?
just a fine; he never went to court or stepped ina police car
Did he have marijuana or some other drug?
