Can I get Job with an Adjudication Withheld Sex Offense?

Can I get  Job with an Adjudication Withheld  Sex Offense?

Can I get  Job with an Adjudication Withheld  Sex Offense?Hi,  I seem to be having issues getting a job. I’m a registered sex offender in Florida. I have Adjudication withheld innocent. Never on probation and no restrictions. I only have to register twice a year. I’m a one of a kind since most offenders had probation etc. I can vote and carry a gun.
 I had sex with my wife when she was two months shy of 18. State attorney charged me with statutory rape. We are still married and have a 5 year old daughter. This is affecting my life. I have an MBA and masters in criminology.  I was forced to quit my job as a police officer of 15 years because of the charges.
Every time I apply for a job I get turned down. I guess I could move to any of the 36 other states that don’t consider my crime as a problem since most states is 16. Also adjudication in say Georgia is not a problem since they consider it as innocent.  I want to stay in Florida what do you suggest short of writing the Governor for a pardon.

Hello WG,

Since very few pardons are granted, that may not be a viable option.  The good news is that Withheld Adjudication has a positive outlook.   Typically, there are terms associated with the this process, usually a fine and probation.  Once the terms are met, the original charges are dropped leaving only an arrest record.  When background checks are done, only the charge is seen.  You can find out from the prosecutor associated with the case to find out if the terms were met and the charges were indeed dropped.

If indeed the charges were dropped, expungement may be an option.  Expungement essentially is a process that will hide the charges from public view.  If an expungement is granted, the charge will not show up on a background check, making getting a job a lot easier.  Because this a legal process, I would would seek assistance from a qualified legal professional that understands the process in your state.  You should contact the legal aid office in your community where you could possibly get free legal assistance in this matter.
