My son had a felony more than ten years ago, hasnt had any trouble sence then. His felony accoured in Arizona . He has had trouble finding work, renting appartments, ect. He lives in Minnesota now and I was wondering if you knew of something he could do to seal his record. Monies are tight , hes deeply depressed about not being able to acheve a stable life style allways ending up in jobs going nowhere. If jail is supose to rehabilate someone and you serve your sentence, why dose it seem that he is still paying for his crime.
Mom desperate to help.
If he was convicted as an adult, the best he can do is have the conviction set-aside. This would change the disposition of the case from convicted to set-aside, which should make it easier for him to find work and housing.
