Is there a way to make a change to criminal charges after time
is there a way to make a change to criminal charges after time is served? For example, my son was charged with: Burglary of habitation and Theft of a firearm. He served 3 years and has been released since 2015. Is there a way to change the wording of the charges (for a fee of course) so that he is able to qualify for employment?

I have a class 5 felony on my record from 30 years
Hi....I have a class 5 felony on my record from 30 years ago..'attempted sexual assault on a child'. I've moved on from that and have had 2 successful careers with 2 companies and until his death in 9/2015 had a 27 year relationship.I understand there are some states that after a certain amount of time has passed, no longer require one to register as a sex offender like, I believe Kansas. Do you know how I can find out about those?Also I want to travel abroad. How do I obtain a Visa and what are the more 'forgiving' countries..it has been 30 years.Lastly there are certain countries that don't require a passport like Puerto Rico I understand because they're US territories. So essentially I'm free to go there without further information? I think the Virgin Islands is another. Thanks again!!
In 2004 my wife at the time and I got into an argument over
In 2004 my wife at the time and I got into an argument over the phone and things were said in the heat of the moment. When I got back to Denver from Kentucky I had a warrant for my arrest for threats to person and since it was my wife it was a domestic violence. I plead guilty since the words were said even though they were hollow. After some years had passed it had come to my attention that a charge of that nature cannot be warranted unless there is an imminent threat which there wasn't. I was in Kentucky when the phone call was made and my wife was here in Colorado. Is there a way to have this charge removed on this account? This is the only arrest on my record in my life. Thank you
