Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello. It may be possible to seal or expunge the record because it happened when he was a juvenile (although states do vary on sealing or expunging juvenile offenses which are "sexual" in nature , such as your grandson's). If sealing or expungement is not possible, there is a process to apply for a pardon from the governor and under the circumstances, this might be your avenue to try to get these matters removed from his record. There is a law firm in SC that specializes in these types of cases, and I think that you should contact them to see if something can be done to help your grandson here. Here is a connection to their website where you can get he contact information needed to speak with someone there: http://www.dickjameslawfirm.com/sealing-expungement.html
I genuinely hope that something can be done for your grandson because something that is done at 12 is not a reflection of how someone will live the rest of their lives in my book.
Please press the GREEN ACCEPT BUTTON so I will be paid for my time.
THANK YOU & HAPPY NEW YEAR
