If I was convicted of possesion of marijuana and possesion of cocaine 13 years ago, how do I go about getting the possesion of cocaine felony expunged?

I was found guilty of 2 felonies in the end. I know you are only allowed 1 expungement in your lifetime in the state.

The best way to seek how one goes about getting an expungement of a criminal conviction and the chances for success is to consult with a criminal defense attorney who does such type of work and the attendant costs. From there, you can make the decision if you want to file the petition seeking such.
