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.
