What is the name of your state? Illinois
Shortly after my son's 18 th birthday, he and a 16 year old boy slashed tires on a few semi's under the leadership of the minor. He turned himself in a few days later because he felt so guilty, knowing this is not the way he was raised. Consequently they charged him with a felony conviction and was taken directly to jail. When they took him before the judge for the first time, they took him in 4-point shackles! This poor kid doesn't even swear and is sooooo sensitive, it broke my heart! He was sentenced to pay 2000. in damages and sentenced to two weeks in jail. The minor got community service.
That was all 5 years ago. He has NEVER had any violations in his parole, which is long over but the problem is that he can't find a job application that asks if he has ever been charged with a felony and that is an automatic turn down. Is there any way we can legally get this off his record in Illinois? drkar
