Ex-Congressman Gets His Cocaine Bust Expunged


Former Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL), who resigned earlier this year after getting busted for cocaine, has had his record expunged, NBC Washington reported Friday.

Radel had been told that if he successfully completed probation the charge against him would be dismissed and he could apply to have his record expunged.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said Friday that Radel completed all the conditions of his probation and was granted an early termination of his probation in July. The spokesman, William Miller, said Radel then asked to have his case dismissed and his record expunged, and prosecutors agreed with the request.

It was one year ago when Radel was caught trying to purchase cocaine in an undercover federal sting. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession in November 2013.
