Stephanie in Richlands, Virginia

25 months ago

In 1998, I was found guilty of Assault & Battery ( VA CODE SECTION 18.2-57.2 ) Which I did not commit!!!! I was 19 and now I am 34, My THEN husband had 4 people lie in court stating they seen me hit him, I appealed the case however I was pregnant and 2 days before my appeal court date I went into early labor and I was forced to be stuck with this charge because I couldnt get ahold of my attorney GO FIGURE, I was young and I have never been in trouble since. In the state of VA I can legally purchase and possess a firearm, there is a waiting period for the purchase but I can and have. I am interested in applying for corrections office in Virginia but will it not allow me to be hired?? Some say YES some say NO. I call the institution I wish to apply to but they just tell me to apply and take my chances. I would wish not to give my hopes up if I can not ya know. Please if anyone knows that can help
