My son is on parole with monitor on leg, he was convicted of

My son is on parole with monitor on leg, he was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, spend 10 years of a 12 year sentence, now the parole office wants him to take sexual abuse classes at 75.00 a week and they sited the Coleman Act. He is unable to get a job, I can't afford the money and he was not convicted of sexual assault. Are his civil rights being violated? Why would they let him out to cause him more problems? They have him jumping through hoops as it is, classes nearly every night and he is becoming more and more depressed and I can't afford an attorney and am afraid he will have to go back to prixson. Can you help me, we live in the state of Texas.

my brother in law was on parole and staying with my ex husband,

my brother in law was on parole and staying with my ex husband, his parole officers came to the door my 17 year old son was home sich , he told the officers his uncle was in the hospital which he was. They told my son they had a right to search his living quarters my son being a good kid and trusting them said ok. They found a loaded gun and arrested my son. He was released with a desk appearance , the police are confident it will get thrown out. My son has a 93 average goes to catholic school and is not street smart. He has been having anxiety over this. I dont know what to do I think they took advantage of my son and a parent should have been there before they drilled him. Since then my brother in law passed away and i dont know which way this is going to go. I cant afford a lawyer and everyone says i should make a big deal of this because it wasnt right and maybe a lawyer will do it pro bono. I didnt think that was a good idea because i dont want this issue preventing my son frm graduating

I was convicted of possession of controlled substances in the

I was convicted of possession of controlled substances in the 7th degree back in 1991 in upstate New York. Apparently, my ability to seal this record depends on whether the statutes at that time required me to go through some kind of drug treatment program or not. I have been going through a company to help me seal this record. They cannot seem to find out whether I can seal this record or not? Can you tell me if such a conviction so far back can be sealed? I can't think of a reason why not. It was a minor offense and it was so long ago.
