C & F Issue (selling drugs as a minor)

Postby 3v3ryth1ng » Mon Dec 26, 2011 3:22 am

Crimes:
Possession for sale of weed as a minor (felony)
DUI as a minor.

Punishments:
2 consecutive license suspensions.
AA/NA for a year.
Probation for (I forgot how long).
Juvenile Hall for a week, then serve the rest on house arrest.

Other info:
17B motion for the sale charge (reduced felony to misdemeanor), then expunged, then sealed.
100% Sober for 11 years


I want some general advice on how I should address this in a C&F addendum.

Just write the straight facts, including date, fine/time served, and obviously indicate that they were both when you were a minor so they'd be sealed via your juvenile record. Since it sounds like they occurred over 10 years ago it shouldn't be a huge issue, just be sure to state how you've completely turned your behaviors around since then as shown in your clear record following

Also be sure to include the location of each of the offenses in the addendum. I'll echo what the other poster said in that since it was so long ago it shouldn't make too much of a difference
