A: Your possession charge may no longer appear on CaseNet for a few different reasons:

The case was dismissed: If the prosecutor decided to drop the charges against you, your case was dismissed, and it won't be visible on CaseNet.

The case was adjudicated, and the records were expunged: If you were convicted of the possession charge but completed your sentence, you may be eligible to have your record expunged. This means that the records of your case will be destroyed, and your case will be removed from CaseNet.

There was a technical error with CaseNet: Sometimes, there can be technical errors with CaseNet, and your case might have been accidentally removed. If you think this happened, you should contact the court clerk to check the status of your case.

To find out why your possession charge is no longer on CaseNet, you can contact the court clerk in the county where your case was filed. They can provide information about your case's status and why it's no longer visible on CaseNet.
