Lawyer's Assistant: What were you convicted of exactly? Have all your appeals been exhausted?

Incest with child. Yes my appeals have been exhausted

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to an IL lawyer about this yet?

Hello. My name is Alex.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Parole terms generally require for the person released on parole to inform and landlords, employees, etc...of the fact that the person on parole and is a registered sex offender.

To be sure, it would be a good idea to ask parole officer this question as well.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and good luck!
