Clear record after paying admission of guilt
I paid an admission of guilt fine after being caught with a small amount of dagga 5 yeaars ago. I am now seeking to change jobs, and the resulting record is haunting me.
I would like to have this cleared.
Criminal records can be expunged after 10 years and these are the guidelines : http://www.justice.gov.za/forms/expungement/J744e_formA.pdf
Some employers in the private sector may overlook minor offenses such as yours especially when globally there is a move towards decriminalizing dagga. Otherwise you may have to stick with your present employer for another 5 years.
