I was convicted of 2nd degree burglary at age 18 back in

Hello, I was convicted of 2nd degree burglary at age 18 back in 1988 in Oklahoma. I haven't had anything except a few traffic tickets since then. I want to know if there is a way to clear it off of my record, such as a pardon, expungement, etc.? Thank you in advance-Chris W.

I ran with a guy several years back that was into some bad

I ran with a guy several years back that was into some bad stuff robbing tractors robbing houses and such I was young dumb and on pills at the time so I was very naive of what was going on. To get to the point the first thing that happened they guy asked me to take him to the pawn shop so he could pawn the items and sure enough he left his wallet at home he suckered me into pawning the items he said they didn't have serial numbers and wasnt stolen from anywhere around. I get picked up on it I told them I bought the shit and kept my mouth shut because the guy shot and killed his uncle point blank and got away with it, cut his dad up so bad they had to wrap him In a bed sheet, burned his brother up in a fire. He got away with it all and I think you get the point I didn't tell on him. A little time goes by and I'm out riding with him and his buddie when they decide to steal a lawnmower I sit in truck and never really think much of it. Well the guy ends up stealing from me and he really fell off the deep end and started robbing anyone and everyone he had a little crew even. I cleaned up and a couple few years pass and this guy on face book starts posting shit on my wall talking about me breaking into to cabins and I message him and tell him he's got the wrong guy and he continues to threaten me saying he's been to my house and he has pictures of my truck so I tell him again he's got the wrong guy I haven't seen Steven witch was the theif in years. He said the cops will be there tomorrow and sure enough and off duty cop stopped by in civilian clothes said he was close friends with the guy and would like to settle this off the books if I would work with him and tell him what I know and I told him man I've straightened up i quit doing dope that life ain't for me I haven't talked to him. He didn't believe me me at first, we'll a few days later the cop called me and sincerely ***** ***** told me that they found out who did it and that it wasn't me. About a week after that he text me and said could I meet up with him again at my house this time on duty because he had a line up and needed me to point someone out I told him yes that was fine" all of this is where I felt wrongly done  I didn't know they were allowed to come question you off duty and trick you more or less into arresting you and there's more" I got home I messaged him he came about an hour later with another cop from my County I lived a county over. He then told me there no line up any had a warrant for my arrest I asked him what for he said for a stolen lawn mower several years back in our cop ride down there he told me the reason he arrested me it's because I wouldn't tell him anything and he needed me more than anyone else because I knew the most about Steven and he knew this was the only way to get me to talk. My brother was in jail he went to my brother and told my brother to tell my mom that I need to talk to him and that I should trust him before he arrested me but I figured they were just trying to get me to incriminate myself too. Back on track while we're in the car you said if I was to tell them what they need to know his exact words put the nail in the coffin that these charges would be dropped because they're not looking for me they were only wanting him they needed me to as I said put the nail in the coffin. He told me that he couldn't promise me anything on tape which I understood that but even on the tape I tried to ask if they had my best interest at hand and he wouldn't even answer that which I understand because they can get in trouble. I told him everything I know even incriminate myself because he told me of tape that it would be fine he even got a call from one of the counties that was trying to charge me and told him that I was cooperating and they said that they wasn't going to charge me I think that was while the tape was running. After all that he messaged me on Facebook and told me I did a good job I've got several messages back and forth to where he said he was calling the da to talk to the DA about my charges. The cop got fired and I messaged him immediately and asked him if he was going to mess up my case because he wasn't there anymore and I was afraid that they would stick to his word because I trusted what he said. And he told me that he wasn't prosecuting my case anymore so it should be dropped I don't know what that means but like I said I have several messages to where he's looking out for my best interest you can clearly see where he's trying to help me I trusted him somewhat  at the time but he's not a cop anymore. I'm sure I left a lot out have paid $4,500 for a lawyer they have continued it twice these charges are from almost 5 years ago I am trying to get them in the past. I recently got laid off and I'm trying to find employment and I can't because I have pending charges everyone sees aggravated burglary and will not hire me. The past is the past I'm only 26 I have a whole life ahead I've lived and learned and

Approximately 15 years ago, my son was convicted of breaking

Approximately 15 years ago, my son was convicted of breaking and entering with burglary tools (he had a key) a felony in Illinois. Nothing was taken. He was 22 and admitted not thinking of the ramifications of his actions. I feel his representation misled him and was not up front that he would be charged with a felony. He has had no other altercations with the law. Can this incident be expunged from his record? He currently lives in Arkansas and has been unable to find employment. Is there a direction he can go to get this resolved?

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage to

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage for me to pick up,but forgot one item. I went into the house and got it. Later I ended up buying them one Bc I felt bad they didn't have one anyways. Now a year and a half later they are saying it was breaking and entering Bc they asked me not to enter the house. They are saying they have video evidence from next door neighbors and are threatening to take to police if I don't pay them 2200. If we both lived there but it was in her name would it be breaking and entering if I didn't steal anything? And how lond does she have before this runs out. It all just seems so bogus now.

I have no record, was arrested & charged with 3 felonies July 2. burglary, assault & battery & domestic abuse. I am 8 months pregnant, knocked on the door of my husbands girlfriends house. my son wasn't supposed to be there. she said he wasn't, I heard him cry & pushed my way past her to go in. my husband came out & tackled me until the police got there & I bit him to try to get him to get his hand off my mouth. very short summary, but to explain the*****is July 18 that will be my first time to see the judge. do the people pressing charges get to decide if these are felonies or not? I have no idea what to expect. jail time, etc.
