I was Wrongly charged with Drug Paraphernalia
and went to the court with a letter from my doctor stating that I was in treatment and that I had every legal right to have it in my possession the judgement was Nol Pros which as I understand now is not a dismissal but just a deferment to throw back at me if I am convicted again for the same offense! this is wrong and I want the judgment changed an stricken from my record. how can I have this done?

What you can have done is to get the charge sealed or expunged from your record. You must be eligible though. You should contact an attorney to see if you are eligible for this.
You would be able to expunge your record since the charges were dropped, if you met all the other eligibility requirements. Can you answer "no" to the following three questions?
1. Have you ever been convicted of a crime before?
2. Have you ever sealed or expunged a record before?
3. Are you currently under court supervision?
If you can answer "no" to the questions above, you would be able to expunge. Expungement means your court records and nonjudicial records associated with your arrest would be physically destroyed.
