    Sorry, I don't know anything about your problem. It sounds like a personal issue that forums can't help, but you're hopefully on the right track. You'll just have to be patient and not waste your time.

    I'm not an attorney yet and this is not legal advice. To my understanding adjudication withheld generally means that you have not been convicted of a crime yet, but that you have come to an agreement with the courts that as long as you do X (i.e. probation, stay out of trouble for Y amount of time, etc) you will not be be a convicted felon (in your case you will not be convicted of the 5th degree felony drug charge you still may be convicted of). Your charge is pending on you to basically do what you or your attorney agreed you would do/the judge that ruled your case imposed you to do/etc is done and over. At that time the case is closed and for all intents and purposes you were arrested, charged but never convicted, so you are by default innocent.

    Like others said, talk to several attorneys that litigate on the criminal side of the house on your state. Also, read your hole court case to see what the fine print says - go to the court house and review your case file. Finally, read up on the law, starting at Ch 624.71
    I can no longer keep track of threads as I used to. If you need to contact me, PM me instead of asking me something in the thread. Disclaimer - No legal advice issued anywhere. Take care.

    I am an actual lawyer, and a criminal lawyer at that.

    But I can't be much help; I don't mind giving free advice - - but ONLY when I KNOW the answer, for sure.

    Being wrong is embarrassing, but it also has other unpleasant consequences. That's why you're not going to find out the answer here, unless another lawyer, in your jurisdiction, has recently found out the answer.

    Don't be discouraged - - just put in some legwork. Call lawyers around your area and find one who knows the answer or who has done something similar recently and hire him (or her) up. There'll be a few phone calls involved and it may be frustrating at first. Just make a few calls at a time, over a period of days or weeks.

    You'll get it figured out. It may cost money, and the answer may not be one you like, but you won't be any worse off than you are now.

    Courts aren't exactly known for being 100 % accurate in keeping their records up to date, I know this from personal experience. Did you get this off their website? That being said, check with them and make sure the actual disposition is recorded, which if the time has passed, should be "dismissed." If it is still pending, I doubt you could get a permit at this time.

    Pay a local attorney for the advice you want.

    (That will be $500. Send me a check for that advice...)

    I asked my attorney if she would answer TWO questions for $500.
    Said she, "Sure, what's your other question?"
