Thank you for your patience.
Please permit me to answer that one at a time.
is there any to seal my records,so that this sort of thing will not show up again?
Generally no, Texas can permit an expungement but when it is not a felony and is not a conviction. Here, it is likely not going to be granted. You can seek a formal pardon, however, and see if that may remove the offense from your record. Go to this link to learn more:
an is there any advise you can provide to help with this case ?
I cannot provide you with any advise at all. The reason is because JustAnswer is a public forum, where our responses are not private, confidential, or protected under our attorney client privilege
. While were are attorneys, we are not your
attorneys and therefore we cannot advise you one way or another. All we can do is provide you with legal information that can help you with making a decision for yourself.
and can they prohibit me from fostering after so many years has passed and it was not an offense to harm a child
If they deem this to be an omission (for example you failed to disclose it when requested), or if it is of a sufficient level of offense (felonies are not permitted), then yes. You can request a hearing, and I do suggest you retain counsel to help you and possibly represent you in front of the board.
