This answer was rated:

i live in Florida but have a felony in Nebraska. Its been over 10 years since i have been off of probation and would like to get a pardon to get my rights restored. I am in college going for my paralegal degree and would like this off my record so I can get a great job and care for my family. I was 23 and met a girl and did not know her age i am now almost 40. I now have a first degree sexual assault felony. I have been out of trouble i think for the past 10 years. What can I do to get things done?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

I am afraid that under NE law, your only way to get this off of your record is the pardon and either you have to appear or you have to hire an attorney to try to get a waiver of your appearance approved by the board of pardons and parole to appear. The board rarely grants such a waiver except for extreme circumstances such as disability or the person is out of the country, but it is possible. Unfortunately, the law is pretty specific because the board will want to talk to you to get a feel as to whether or not a pardon would be warranted in your case. It is something that people have to make a decision on as to how bad they want and need the pardon I am afraid to say.

i am a disabled vet if that helps

Thank you for your response.

Sadly, that really does not help unless you can prove that your disability prevents you from being able to travel and then you can get an attorney to appear on your behalf.
