I was asking for a pardon because I served time in prison in the State of California many years ago for a conviction. I have done my time with parole, followed the state rules and I have nothing else on my criminal recorded. After 10 years I get a letter in the mail saying if I pay the Lawyer he can take me off the registration and it never did happen, I was ripped off a lot of money!!
I have been looking forward to trying to get more educated so I can find a job but it is so difficult to get a job with a conviction on your record. Many employers refuse to hire me with this conviction and just won’t admit it.
When it comes to relationship they are very hard to find because people can be very judgmental once I inform them about my conviction, but I have found someone who gave me a chance and did not judge me when I told her of my conviction. We have been together for 4 years and we have formed a little family. We would like to move in with each together but I can’t do to this registration. If I move in with her or she moves in with me then people start judging her just likes me and that is unfair because she is not doing anything wrong.
I would like to remove this registration and marry my girlfriend. At this point I just wish there was something like a three tier law to keep the real bad ones in prison so I can move on with my life. Some of us deserve a chance.
Registry makes for hard life
