Sir, When President Bill Clinton was in power he gave clemecy to many people, I understand what you stated about certain things the President can not do. I thought the President can give me a clemency, due to my charge was for a plea of lesser charge of simple possession of cocaine , which is stupid. after 18 yrs, and I have not commint any crime. Also you think it would help getting signatures of people who know me well enough can help also in this matter? I am very disappointed in the law system of this country, my brother wrote a statement, taking full responsiblity that I had no knowledge of the drugs in the car, when I made a plea bargin was my lawyer at the time told me to do so. that he explain this was not going to hurt me in any way. Never in my life I was ever arrested, landed in a detention jail, and no where to turn too.
I also would like to ask you, I was a security officer working and the state of New York appove me and gave me a license, in 1994, now three yrs ago, I apply and was denied. for security guard.Which I do not understand. I was fingerprinted and was send to the F.B.I. in 1994, I took the plea in 1992, can you explain this to me please.
why they denied me now? What can I do?
I recently recieved a pardon from Ga. the charge was Simple Possession of cocaine. I was sentenced to 3 years, did 5 months and was released with time served on 11/09/92. I was given no parole, probation or any legal fee's. In the pardon on the 3rd paragraph it states without implying innocence, hereby unconcitionally fully pardons said individual and is hereby ordered that all disabliities under Ga. law resulting from the above satated convictions and sentence as well as any other Ga. conviction and sentenceimposed prior there to be each and all reomoved. Orther futher that all civil and pollitical rights, except the right to recieve, possess or transport in commerce a firearm lost under Ga. law as a result of stated conviction, are hereby restored.
does this mean that only in Ga. I cannot have a firearm only in Ga.,or does it mean in all the states. .
I also want to know if I can reapply for my Security guard Liscense . In 1995, 21/2 years after this incident I was given a liscense. I tried to renew it in 2007 and was given problems by Homeland Security. Can they deny me even with this pardon. I applied for a job in a pawn shop and was denied because of this incident of over 19 years. Can they legally do that. I have had on other incidenst since then. I am also having a simular problem with immigration. I am waiting for the final out come on my citizenship application. I have been waiting since 1/05/11. they told me 10 days and it is now 20 .
My last question is can you explain again how to go about an apeal on a denied application for expungement
All of these things have me very depress, and block me from moving foward and making a better life for me and my family. Thank you
