Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm very sorry to hear that this happened.

The laws on cleaning up a record are different in every state. Where do you live?

Thank you.

Rhode Island law currently allows a person to expunge a misdemeanor conviction once five years have passed after the release from probation. You can do this as long as you do not receive any other convictions, suspended sentences, fines, or probation on your record. Essentially, they let you remove one conviction as long as it's the only one.

Because you plead guilty, I'm afraid that you legally cannot go after the person who did this. A lawsuit for malicious prosecution requires that the underlying criminal case be resolved in your favor. A guilty plea is a confession that you did the thing you were accused of doing. Even if you had good reasons for taking the plea, you aren't allowed to go into a civil court later and claim innocence. I'm sorry.

I apologize that this was probably not the Answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand. Please rate my answer positively to ensure I am paid for the time I spent answering your question. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.

Good luck.

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.
