Unfortunately there are no legal provisions to remove such a charge from your record perhaps short of a Presidential pardon which is pretty much impossible to obtain on a charge like this. There have been numerous challenges to the sex offender registry laws but to date the courts have upheld them no matter how harsh they seem.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
