Most of the time, those in drug court have drug offenses on their record. It seemed like a great new start. Become sober or drug free through a court intensive program and at the end, you have a new outlook on life and a new clear criminal record to help you find a job and really change your ways.
Many expungements were granted clearing the records of those in drug court. However, those orders were questioned and appealed. Now, based on a new case, it appears if on your record is a 3rd or 4th degree drug charge that would normally require one to prove expungement was in the public interest, you now have to prove that even if you graduated drug court.
