Sex offender needs job search help Q: My attorney advised me to take a plea bargain. I know there is no expungement or pardoning because I admitted to it…. BUT, it was only a misdemeanor when I was nineteen. I was sentenced to 1 year, but that year was suspended due to the fact that I had no prior record.
I was eventually kicked out of college because they found out. I had one year to go. I did as they called for, went to the station, waited for forty-five minutes, got my picture taken, fingerprinted, DNA swabbed, and reconfirmed my address and information, even so they still charged me with it because he did not do his job. It was my responsibility to make sure the documents got to the state. They knew my story and still hired me. I was employee of the month twice!! But that stopped when I got a call in January from the state trooper, notifying me that I missed a registration.
My mother signed for all others, but she could not this time. I was able to prove that the letter never got to my hands, but they alleged the post office attempted to give notice to me. It was sent back to the state office and once more, it was my fault. I now have a felony for a stupid piece of paper not being sent to them. I can not find a job. Even if all you can do is answer this letter. It is more than I could hope for. I would never hurt anyone…I find myself giving what little money i have to the homeless because I can not stand to see people suffer.
I see on your site that you specialize at helping felons get jobs. I do genuinely appreciate just the time you took to read this. Sex offender needs job search help A: Hello Reese, Unfortunately there are no easy answers here. You have an advantage over most ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.
You have a marketable skill. With experience as a skilled mechanic it should me relative easy to find a job. Sex offenders and felons looking for jobs should look to smaller companies. I suggest you apply to independent garages.
Most smaller businesses do not do background checks because they can be expensive. If you have to fill out an application, there may be a space that asks about criminal records. Concentrate on your skills as a mechanic. You will be surprised how well this works. You can get a list of independent garages from you local phone book. Best of luck to you. Are you an ex offender who has a question about finding a job with a criminal record?
