Denise, CST,FA in Casselberry, Florida said: You are so right about the liability being the responsibility of the Doctor, Hospital , Homehealth Coorporation or College if they hire you or allow you to attend their college. I don't care if it is a private, state or federal business or university, they are responsible and can be held liable if there is a felony clause in their job or college application contract . I am not telling anyone to throw up your hands and give up. I am just telling everyone, if you have been convicted of a felony (especially brutality or abuse to another human, hurt a child psychologically or sexually, robbed a bank or business, use, sale or manufacture of narcotics you do not need to attempt to get into the patient care and healthcare field.There are other jobs that you can do and specialize in with pride.

Hi I'm in college working towards my bachelors in nursing I have had my charge expunged for free because it was class d.im already a Cna working for a home health agency but I'm curious about me getting a good job when I finish college...I don't want to waste my time but I'm positive and I want this more than anything...

Cyndy,

Are you still working as a CNA? I have a misdemeanor (missed a court date, suspended license 2011). I am trying to find out, would it be difficult for me to get a cna job? I am thinking about taking the cna courses.

Hello you need to start looking into opening your own private practice and create a business. Apply for all the necessary medical payment programs and insurances so you can start seeing clients as well as getting reimbursed and also hire other professionals you have the license then you should be able to do supervision as well. This way you don't need to work for others and start working for yourself so you can move forward. God Bless.

Chance 12 in Celina, Ohio said: Hello, I was arrested for domestic violence and later the charges were dismissed. I have been told to put no on the box for being convicted of a felony, but it shows up on a background check even though it was dismissed. I am a CST and now very confused as how to proceed, if I should continue to follow this dream or head off in a new direction. Please help.

Heres what happened and dont listen to anything else k. Ive done lots of homework on this legal matter. So im in CA, law here might be different. Most states tend to follow or copy our laws in time. Ive asked lawyers, court clerks etc too. OK SOOOO! Sounds like you got your record EXPUNGED, which means your were guilty and therefore convicted. You followed through to meet the terms of your punishment (probation, jail time, community service, or completed waiting period... whatever)
So the Justice Dept needed to come up with something to give people a chance, otherwise they will be screwed and do whatever it takes to survive. So in my state its called article 1402.2 something like that. What expungement means is that your guilty plea is turned into a not guilty or no contest and the conviction is SET ASIDE per 1402.2 and DISMISSED. Had you never been convicted in the first place you would be eligible to get your record SEALED not expunged. When its sealed only certain people can see it, government officials etc. Anyone else needs a legal process to unseal it. And after a period of i think 3 years the record will be destroyed

Thats good advice, i would also even think about moving to more hungry job markets for your field. Youve sacrificed alot to do what you do. Its very hard for felons to do anything in this country. Sucks, almost no such thing as a second chance. But you got to explore job markets in other states, avoid highly desirable places to live like NY, SF bay area, Miami, San Diego, Boston etc. (competition)

mufasa69penny in Appleton, Wisconsin said:

So when my background check FINALLY came back it showed EVERYTHING, lots of lil stuff but the two most serious was possession of a dangerous weapon and DUI. Only concern was the weapon charge. Even though everything was 1402.2 Dismissed it was overshadowed by being at the end of each paragraph. I was let go. SUCKS. To them you were arrested for that PERIOD. Pretty much thats how it is. Depends on what company does the background check too, some wont show expungements. One way to help cover your ass in the application when they ask "have you been convicted" say "yes however it was expunged per 1402.2 amd dismissed". Some applications tell you not to include anything that was expunged...which is cool. I would talk to Human Resources if you can about what to do. I was caught off guard when it showed and i looked and sounded pretty stupid. I know what to do better next time. Also with ANYTHING that indicates VIOLENCE on your record, dismissed or not its a red flag to the people that will hire you, its a hard up hill battle

Come to think of it, i dont think you can expunge a felony in CA. You can only expunge misdemeanors. I would talk to as many legal pros in the court you were charged at. Talk to people at law libary, court clerk whatever, spend at least an hour seeking advice.

To Cisco in San Leandro, the state of CA (otherwise known as HELL) does indeed allow for a felony conviction to be expunged. It just takes MONEY. You have to hire a lawyer and pay court fees, filing fees, etc. as well as attorney fees. but it can be done. It just takes money, as anyone who has lived in CA they are ALL ABOUT THE MONEY there! So if you have it and you don't mind giving it to CA you can get your conviction expunged even if it is a felony. Misdemeanors go away on their own eventually. Statute of Limitations allows for that but Felonies don't have a statute of limitations which is why you have to get the conviction expunged.

So I am confused so help me understand...someone PLEASE! I have two passing bad check charges 2 months prior to felony/fraud/overpayment of welfare monies. I thought the only way you were able to get anything expunged is if there were no prior charges. Mine were 2 checks misdemeanors 1/1994 followed by welfare fraud/theft 3/1994 felony. Please respond. Thanks everyone.

Kimmeh1109 in Odessa, Texas said: I'm a medical assistant && looking into surgical technology but I have a felony charge for credit card theft/abuse. It happened 3 years ago, (served no jail time) but i'm still on deferred probation until I finish paying so I have a few more years to go. I was told I could have it expunged later, but I'm stuck with it until then. Well I wanted to know if I could still be able to obtain certification as a surgical tech. I am actually a pre-med student, but looking for a higher certification other than a MA to help pay off my dues before med school so I could have it expunged by then. Help please? Thanks

I have a felony in Credit Card Abuse. On deferred probation when they run your background it only show that you was arrested(even if you didn't do any jail time) because they had to book you in. but once you come off of probation that is when it will show that you have a felony and what the felony is. So I suggest that you find something right now while you are on probation. I just didn't know at the time of my probation and when I did the judge granted early release for me..Goodluck

Your going to have a tuff time, your felonies are still new. Shoot not even the military would take you because they think you wont obey, id give them a serious try though because it will look like you COMPLETELY changed your life if accepted. I should have joined. Assuming your off parole I would talk to your parole officer and talk to people in Human Resources for any job you want, they will give you a straight up answer for career advice since your not actually applying. If you talk to them like you are applying then they are going to cover their ass and beat around the bush so they dont sound like they are discriminating. My advice is get really good at math no matter what.

Yes I recently learned you are correct somewhat. Im pretty sure that a felony conviction cannot be expunged HOWEVER it can be reduced to a misdemeanor after meeting conditions and then expunged.

Yea to get something expunged mean no priors in the same charge. For instance i was convicted for possession of martial arts weapon. Even Nunchucks are a felony in CA, yea those wooden sticks bruce lee would swing around. Ok months later my room is searched, i couldve sworn i got rid of everything and lo and behold they find a dagger. Luckily they believed me and i just got my probation re-instated and completed the terms of my probation without violation. I was then later eligible to get it expunged. If i was convicted for the same thing again i would really be screwed right now. Weapons possesion convictions do not look good right now with all the shootings going on TV.

If you want to know if you can get it expunged you have to go to the court where you were convicted at. I encourage you to try but I gotta be honest and say that in my state you might be ineligible for expungement. From now on at least just keep your nose clean and keep putting distance between who you were then and now.

Although your conviction may be dismissed, restrictions resulting from the conviction cannot. An expungement does not:
Remove the conviction from your criminal history. California and FBI criminal history records will still show the conviction and the subsequent dismissal.
Seal the court case file from public inspection. The court file remains public record.
Reinstate your right to possess firearms. In some cases, reduction of a non-violent felony to a misdemeanor may accomplish this.
Relieve you of your duty to register as a sex offender. In some cases, this may be accomplished by a different motion to the court.
Allow you to omit the conviction from applications for government-issued licenses.
You must disclose your conviction and expungement in your license application.
Allow you to omit the conviction from application for government employment. If you are applying for a government job, a job that requires security clearance, or a job that requires a government-issued license, certificate, or permit, you must disclose the conviction and expungement.
Allow you to hold public office, if the conviction prevented you from doing so.
Prevent the conviction from being used to refuse or revoke a government license or permit, such as real estate license, teaching credential, security guard certificate, etc.
Prevent the conviction from being used as a "prior." The dismissed conviction can be used for determining sentencing enhancements in subsequent convictions.
Prevent the conviction from being used by the DMV. Expunged convictions may be used to suspend or revoke driving privileges.
Prevent the conviction from being used by US Citizenship and Immigration Services. In many situations, an expunged conviction may be considered for removal or exclusion purposes.

you know, sometimes people make mistakes. In fact, we learn the most when we make mistakes. Trial and error make the biggest impact on our lives. Everyone deserves a second chance. A friend of mine was caught with a bag of meth while in dental school. The judge let him seek treatment and he is now thriving in his private practice. One mistake is ok. Two....well, that is a habit.

Only by the grace of God are we in the position that we are in, referencing to the one's who don't have felonies,for one day in a split of a moment could we be caught up in any situation that we wouldn't never think that we could be in. Show compassion and mercy in every situation and be very careful OF who you judge.

The circumstance --being in dental school-- goes to character and shows the guy was worth the risk. once its on your record, its a completely different story.

lynn not to bring you down.im in wisconsin i went to school for aoda counselor and couldnt graduate because i couldnt get an internship because of dui's and one was to recent at the time.someone in my class had 5 and got an internship.other places turned me down cause of the competition or my dui was to recent.im 47 and didnt graduate just because of that.you can still go for other things i guess but not sure what.i finally just gave up and decided to get a manufacturing job that paid more than what even a counselor with an associates degree would get.i decided to work and save up for my retirement and pay off my house.i dont have the stress anymore of worrying or school.all of my convictions were misdeameanors.i even got denied a job in an assisted living place because of my disorderly conduct charge and dui's.here in wisconsin the job has to relate to the conviction.i filed a complaint with the state against that employer and got a cheap lawyer and i won money.more than just a few thousands.i felt like they had to learn what the laws are.it was for a kitchen job at an assisted living place.they totally discriminated against me.i would start researching different careers.soory to be a downer.i just wanted to tell you my store and how i finally just accepted it.maybe there is something else that you could go into. best of luck

On a personal note I agree with you that you should be allowed a second chance. Not all felons, violent or otherwise, are career criminals, some just make mistakes and pay for them in whatever way the courts choose as well as in other ways. I do NOT believe that good people who make mistakes should have to pay for it their entire lives. EVERYONE deserves a second chance.

And people wonder why criminals become career criminals! It's because no very FEW people are willing to give them a second chance so that they have no choice but to take the path of least resistance! Those nincompoops need to have a serious reality check and realize that THEY are the ones holding the "criminals" back. We are all under the so called "respectable, good people" back. Refusing to allow them to prove themselves and live a decent life after having paid for their mistake. Just my 2 cents. I wish you both well. Be Blessed.

I am currently in school studying law and I am going to do what I can to work on giving non-violent felons a chance. We pay our dues and our punishment and we suffer for a lifetime. I have been following some articles and recent movements with regard to the fourth amendment and non-violent felons right to bear arms. The NRA along with one of the Michigan senators is workign to overturn this since it is a violation of our constitutional right to protect our homes. There are a few different cases about it now. That is one step towards helping us get our rights back along with lives.

Well I got out of federal prison for a crime of violence and Imy going to school for applied sciences to possibly work in the mental health industry. Is that even possible?

So has the rights to bear arms had any change since you left your comment 97 months ago?
I'm a non violent offender who was charged for forgery an theft an burglary in 2002, did prison time an still on parole for it till this day cause I owe high restitution. Committed these crimes at age 21 an now 35. I have a autistic daughter that I can't even protect at our own property or anywhere. I hate it!

Cyndy in Cleveland, Mississippi said: Thanks for the encouragement, but my felony is federal and can't be expunged. Believe me I've checked on it. I'm currently working as a CNA now. I'm trying to wait until 2010, when I come off probation to apply to school. The felony will be 5 years old and maybe the board won't look so hard at it. All I can do it try. If its for me than God will make sure I get it.

Was you already a cna before i got the felony
