Juvenile record is a problem

Juvenile record is a problem


Hey,

My name is Ali, I am in need of help. I was convicted of a juvenile felony in 99 and its now impossible to find a job. I have a bachelors in English and became certified in VA and two other states to teach. I was lucky and was able to find a job teaching in VA for a public school. I was even able to get into the air force(somehow). The Air Force found out about my background but looked past it and I served my time. The school I taught for gave me employment before they had livescan (my worse enemy). Anyways since I left that school district a few years back I was overseas teaching. Since I came back and moved to Austin, TX it is impossible to find gainful employment. I know I can go to McDonalds, but I am 27 now and need something realistic. I had a job as a security guard, the company loved me and all, but when my background came back, they let me go. I am at wits end with trying to find something that will allow me to actually be a productive member of society. I am young and have so much to offer, but my background haunts me. Its frustrating to have served my time and still all these years later have it thrown in my face. I don’t know where to turn or where to start. I know in TX you cannot get a teaching license with a criminal background, so I don’t know where else to turn. Can you give me some direction as to where to start?

Respectfully,

Ali

Juvenile record is a problem


Hello Ali,

I am confused. It is my understanding that juvenile records are automatically sealed by the court ant are only visible to law enforcement, the court system and government agencies. The one instance that it would not be sealed is the case of a sexual offense. In any event, I suggest you get a copy of your record. The best would come from the FBI.

Individuals can obtain a copy of their national criminal history record from the FBI by submitting a request to the address below. In order to receive a copy of your FBI record for personal, employment, or international work requirements the FBI requires the following:

1) A signed written request with a brief explanation for the request and your complete return
mailing address.

2) Each request must contain two completed applicant fingerprint cards with all of the applicant's
personal information (name, date of birth, place of birth, etc.) and a current set of 10 rolled
fingerprints and eight flat finger impressions. Fingerprints and impressions must be taken by a
local law enforcement agency.

3) An $18.00 fee in U.S. currency by certified check or money order payable to the United States Treasury.

This information is provided in compliance with the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.

For more information, you may contact the FBI at 304-625-3878

Once you have a copy of your record, you can see exact what comes up on a background checks. Next, I suggest you speak to an attorney. An attorney can tell you what your legal options are. You can probably get low-cost or even no-cost legal assistance at your local legal aid office. Many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs require legal assistance.

In relation to teaching  positions, you may want to look at teaching at your local community college. Community colleges are less bound by regulations than public schools are

I hope this helps.

Will my juvenile record work against me?

Will my juvenile record work against me?


Lost girls: Young women face harsher punishment

in Maryland’s juvenile justice system 

I got into trouble when I was a teenager. I am now in college and trying to decide on a career. I am interested in becoming an Elementary Education Teacher. Even though I have a juvenile record, will it stop me from having a career in the field I choose?

Thank you.

Chris





Will my juvenile record work against me?


Hello Chris,

That is a very good question. Contrary to what many people believe, your juvenile record does not disappear when you become an adult. My advice to you is apply to have your record sealed by the court. Often felon job searches begin with a little legal assistance.

Will my juvenile record work against me?Once a case is “sealed” and can only be examined by order of the court. To seal a criminal record means that a court clerk is ordered by a judge to hide a court record of criminal proceedings from public view. Originally records were actually placed in an envelope which was secured with a wax seal. The records are not destroyed because under certain circumstances, a court can order that sealed records be reopened. Generally, however, the effect of sealing is the court acts as if the information in the record never existed. Even a juvenile record can be sealed through the juvenile court. Once this has been done, the offense shall be deemed never to have occurred. There are no exceptions to this type of sealing; offenses are treated as though they never happened. A court not only seals its records, but also orders that records containing information about the charges held by others be sealed as well. Once a criminal record is sealed, all of the proceedings in it are treated as if they never occurred. Persons may then properly and lawfully answer any questions about the arrest, acquittal, conviction etc., as if they never happened. For example, it is OK in a job interview or even under oath to deny a sealed conviction. Once a record has been sealed it is not gone. I will be visible to law enforcement, government agencies and the court system.

Check with your local legal aid office for getting help getting this done.

Juvenile Felon needs Job Search Advice

Juvenile Felon needs Job Search Advice


 Juvenile Felon needs Job Search AdviceHello,


I have just been offered a position to teach in the Palm Beach County School District. On the Security Form they have asked me to fill out the first question is, "Has your driver's license EVER been suspended or revoked?" Farther down, there is a question, "Have you EVER plead no contest in a criminal proceeding?"


When I was 16 yrs old (2001), I was arrested for underage drinking, and I plead no contest and with the disposition that my license was suspended for 6 months. I did a background check on myself to figure out the dates, but there was no record of it. Do I answer yes to these questions? My concern is that I have to have my fingerprints taken to verify my background, and I remember having my fingerprints taken after the arrest; I am worried that there might be a hit in the system for my fingerprints, and if I answer "No" now I will have lied on my application and be fired. What is your advice?

Thank you for your time.
