Plead guilty to a misdemeanor in 1999, on the advice of the lawyer. Served community service, and went to anger management classes. Has had no other convictions or occurances of disobiediance of the law since that time. Can it be sealed, so he will not have to put it on job applications anymore. It is coming up on LiveScan and is effecting his ability to get a job.
Is is possible to have the guilty plea changed even though it has been over 11 years? I can't believe there is NOTHING that can be done and that this will follow him FOREVER. He pled guilty on bad advice from a lawyer, who 11 years ago, said no one will see this convictions....there was no internet...and now EVERYONE can see it. Is there anyway to overturn the conviction?
