Felons can Use a Certificate of Rehabilitation to get Jobs

Felons can Use a Certificate of Rehabilitation to get Jobs
Many ex-offenders and felons find it very difficult to find jobs after serving their sentences. There are some legal tools that are available that can be used that will make the difficult task of getting hired with a criminal record easier. One of these tools is the Certificate of Rehabilitation. It has also been known as Certificate of Relief from Disabilities or Restoration of Rights or Certificate of Good Conduct.

A Certificate of Rehabilitation is a court order, which declares that a person who has been
convicted of a felony is rehabilitated.  If a petition for a Certificate of Rehabilitation is granted, it
is forwarded to the Governor by the granting court and constitutes an application for a pardon.  (In
some cases the granting of a Certificate of Rehabilitation relieves some offenders from the sexual
offender registration requirement.)

If granted a certificate, one may be eligible to be certified in some fields that were previously closed because of the nature of one's conviction

Currently there are 14 states (and Washington, D.C.) in total that offer certificates of rehabilitation:


  •  Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Georgia
  •  Illinois
  • Nevada
  • New York
  • New Jersey
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio
  • Rhode Island
  • Tennessee
  • Vermont
Each state has it own requirements for those who wish to apply for a Certificate of Rehabilitation.  Application for a certificate is a legal process that should only be handled by a legal professional.  You must get assistance from a qualified professional.  Contact your local Legal Aid office where you may be able to get free or nearly free assistance applying for a certificate.

Legal Aid attorneys may know of employers who have hired ex-offenders and felons in your area.

Jobs that hire Sex Offenders

Jobs that hire Sex Offenders
Just the thought of the term "Sex Offender" brings to mind the worst crimes imaginable.  There are varying degrees of sex-offenses but they are all looked at by the average person as the worst case.  For example, I had a student many years ago who was 15 at the time.  He had gotten his fourteen year old girlfriend pregnant.  The girl's family decided to terminate the pregnancy.  The boy's DNA was tested against the fetal tissue and he was arrested, convicted and be came what is known as a sex offender.  In my state, this kid has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.  By being registered, he has to report to the state police his address, place of employment and must be photographed every year for the state sex offender registry which includes him on a website for the world to see.  For the rest of his life, he will be listed on this website as having sex with an underage female regardless of the circumstance.


Jobs that hire Sex Offenders



Often the same reaction that the sex-offender gets from the public at large is the same reaction that the average employers have.  So what a person with a sex offense do to earn a living?  I have to admit, the students that post the biggest challenge in terms of getting hired are the convicted sex offenders.  The very first suggestion I make is to begin to look for jobs that have limited contact with other people.  Not that they are apt to harm others but employers may be more willing to hire someone with a sex offense who would be in no way be a liability.

I have been helping ex-offenders and felons get jobs for many years and in my experience, sex offenders are more like likely to get hired in the following areas:

Warehousing

Construction

Building Trades

Animal Shelters

Temporary Agencies

Janitorial Services

Automotive Services

Assembly/Manufacturing

Trucking


As I often suggest to all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs, that smaller businesses are more likely to hire those with criminal records.  Often you will get a chance to speak directly with the business owner or the person who makes hiring decisions.

When applying to small businesses, you will find that they use generic applications that you may find at your local office supply store.  On these applications, you may find the standard question "Have you been convicted of a crime.............?"  I commonly urge sex offenders to leave the question blank.  Hopefully, the person who gets the application will overlook this and you can get an interview.  If the question comes up on the interview, don't spend a lot of time answering or explaining.  Offer a brief explanation that may begin with something like this, "I'm glad you asked because I want you to feel comfortable about hiring me..........."

You may also want to go check with your local United Way office.  The United Way works with many agencies that assists people with all types of situations.  Your local office may have resources or contacts to resources that can assist someone in your situation.

Another option is to speak to your parole or probation officer.  The PO may know of employers who have hired registered sex offenders. 

Finding a job as a sex offender will not be easy but there are employers who are willing to give you a chance.  Your challenge is to find them.

Best of luck.

Sex-offender with deferred adjudication needs a job

Sex-offender with deferred adjudication needs a job


Sex-offender with deferred adjudication needs a job
How are you doing?...I'll get to the point. I was received deferred adjudication for aggravated Sexual assault when I was 17...I make no excuses for my actions I was in a very dark place at that time with drugs, liquor, among other things...I plead guilty and received 3 yrs probation and rehab.... Ive since been clean and sober for 9 years.

After rehab my family and I moved to Texas in hopes of starting fresh. I was told I would have to register as a sex offender which at the time I was o.k. with doing...because my probation officer told me before that I never received a tier hearing because the judge believed I had no risk of re-offending (and I'm proud to say I have not since I was 17...I'm 26 now) so although I had to register only law enforcement, courts, and anything fed related could actually see it... But as I found out not soon after that it was very much public record not only was I on quite a few websites on every background check it also shows up...I've tired to get in contact with my old p.o. but when I called the number he gave me the last day of probation i find out he had a heart attack and passed...he was really the only one to really ever try to help me because he knew the whole story...its been extremely hard to find any kind of work here in Texas beside fast food but I have two kids that I have to provide for and I'm running out of options....

The thing is I actually have no problem registering but I was wondering if there is anyway to get myself off these websites or anyway really to get it to a point where its not public at all????


Sex-offender with deferred adjudication needs a job


Hello,

In most cases I would not attempt an answer for a question of this nature because I am not a legal professional. I believe there are other ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs that are in similar situations, I will offer a suggestion.  My understanding of deferred adjudication is, there is an initial plea of guilty. It is my understanding, once the conditions of the deferment are met (typically a fine and probation,) the charges are formally dropped. Since there is no conviction, you may legally answer “no” when the questions asked “Have you been convicted….” The charges although formally dropped, they will still remain as a charge and will appear on background checks as a charge and not a conviction.

If your charge is appearing on registries, there may be a reason that you don't know.
Because this seriously impacts your ability to get a job, I suggest you get legal assistance in first establishing the terms of your deferred adjudication and then what your rights are.  Many ex-offenders and felons who need jobs also need legal advice. I suggest contacting your local legal aid office to get assistance.

Felon with sex offense needs job search advice

Sex offender needs help finding a job


Felon with sex offense needs job search advice
I am a 26 year old convicted sex offender. I did not do this crime (I'm sure you hear that all the time...I know...it gets old, but it's true), but under the advice of my lawyer, I took a plea bargain. Now, it is at this point that I must say that I know there is no expunging or pardoning because I admitted to it....BUT, it was only a misdemeanor conviction when I was 19. I was in Virginia at the time, and my accuser was my 4 year old great niece. I'd never been in any trouble before that. I was in college and my girlfriend literally lived right down the street, so I had no reason to do this, but My lawyer told me that no matter what, they would believe my great niece, because she was sooo convincing and had everyone fooled. ANYWAY, I just wanted to get back to college with no problems.

September 9, 2004 I was convicted of Sexual Battery misdemeanor (it was dropped down from Aggravated Sexual Battery which is a felony.) I was sentenced to 1 year, but that year was suspended due to the fact that I had no other anything on my record. I was eventually kicked out of school because they found out. I had one year to go.

In 2007 I was working for a good company when I received my next charge. "Failure to register as a Sex Offender" misdemeanor. This was because the person who did my DNA and fingerprinting did not send it to the office in Richmond like he was supposed to. I did as they asked, went to the station, waited for like 45 minutes, got my picture taken, fingerprinted, DNA swabbed, and reconfirmed my address and info, yet they still charged me with it because he didn't do his job. It was my responsibility to make sure the documents got to Richmond. BUT I CAN'T GO INTO THE POLICE OFFICE AND DO ANYTHING!!! Since I was stupid enough not to remember the officer's name, it was my fault and I had no choice but to plea. In January of 2008, I was working at a very good job that I loved. ABSOLUTELY LOVED. They knew my history and still hired me. I was employee of the month twice!! BUT that stopped when I get a call in January from the state trooper, telling me that I missed a registration. (I didn't know I had because I just registered.) They tried to send me another on in the mail in December of 2007, but because of my work schedule, I never got the notice. EVERY SINGLE TIME before this, they were able to leave the letter, but for this one, they couldn't without MY signature. My mother signed for all others, but she couldn't this time. The odd thing is, she NEVER got notice of there was something to even be signed. She didn't go out much at all, usually in all day long and she would've heard the doorbell...nothing. I was able to prove that the letter never reached my hands, but they said the post office TRIED to notify me. It was sent back to Richmond and once again, it was my fault. I now have a felony for a stupid piece of paper not being sent to them. I moved to South Carolina in 2008 with my sister after doing 60 days in jail, and things are now stale. I can't find work. I freelance mechanic and do other odd-jobs, but that's few and very far between. I have tried so many different things, but the one thing I can't do is lie about this. I know I have the experience but it's this damned history that's killing me. I won't lie because if they find out, it's worse. I'm just trying to do the right thing and I need a job to further that pursuit. ANYTHING and I do mean ANYTHING you can do would be helpful. Even if all you can do is respond to this letter. It is more than I could hope for. I am a very nice man. I would never hurt anyone...I find myself giving what little money i have to the homeless because I can't stand to see people suffer. I have a fiance' who is doing all she can to support me and get some legal resolve to this nightmare. We know it will be a long process, but we are willing to do whatever it takes. I see on your site that you specialize at finding felons jobs. Now I am not asking for a miracle, because this is a sex offense, not DUI or bad checks. I know it's the worse kind of felony. But please help. I do truly appreciate just the time you took to read this. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Tre

Felon with sex offense needs job search advice



Hello Tre,

Felon with sex offense needs job search advice
Unfortunately there are no easy answers here. You have an advantage over most ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs. You have a marketable skill. With a mechanics trade you could find work in an independent garage. Most small businesses do not do background checks because they can be expensive. When it is time to complete an application, you may opt to leave blank any questions relating to criminal records. If the question does come on an interview, be honest but, as I suggest to ex-offenders and felons, simply acknowledge the charge but don't spend a lot of time talking about it. Concentrate on your skills as a mechanic.

You will be able to get job search help at your local One-stop Career Center. There you will find a list of services that can help a felon find work. There are also counselors there who have experience working with ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs. There you will also find a list of available jobs in your area,

I hope this helps.

Ex-offender in NC looking for a job

Ex-offender in NC Looking for a Job


Ex-offender in NC Looking for a JobHello,

My name is Oscar and I need help finding work in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am not a felon, but I do have a charge on my record. I was charged for secret peeping and plead guilty to it under some bad advice from my public defender. So now this charge is on my record and it is causing a lot of problems for me. I didn't have to register as an offender nor did I really receive any type of punishment for this charge, besides the fact that it is hurting my chances at finding a decent job or home. My girlfriend and I have had our first kid this year and I really need a job that can turn into a place that I can be at for the next decade or two. I am not asking for pity, nor am I trying to tell you a sob story, I really just need some help finding some a job that is promising for myself and my family. I hope to hear back from you as soon as possible, and would like to thank you in advance for any tips or advice.

Ex-offender in NC Looking for a Job



Hello Oscar,

It sounds like you have some type of sex-offense.  My suggestion to you is to find out just how your conviction comes up when a background check is done.  You want to know exactly what a prospective employer sees.  You should have a copy of your disposition that you got when your probation was completed.  If you do not have it, I suggest you get a copy from your probation officer.  When the background check is done, you have to be ready to talk about your charge in a positive way.  Often sex-offenses are the most difficult to work with because of  the stigma attached to them.  

In regard to getting assistance finding a job, ex-offenders and felons in the Charlotte area, an organization called The Center for Community Transitions of Charlotte, NC is a good place to startThey not only provide job search assistance but also helps by making referrals to other resources that can help ex-offenders and their families.  You can contact them here:

A Sex Offender needs a Job


A Sex Offender needs a Job


A Sex Offender needs a JobI am a sex offender that even during this crime I never hurt anybody. It was just pictures on the internet. I have been looking for a job for 2 years now and only have been able to find some very very part-time seasonal job. That only gives me enough to pay for my prescriptions and transportation. How can I get a half way decent job.

Sincerely

Daniel



 A Sex Offender needs a Job




A: Hello Daniel,

A convicted sex offender has a difficult time getting hired. I suggest contacting your parole or probation officer. Often they have knowledge of employers who have hired offenders.

A Sex Offender needs a Job
I suggest also contacting your local United Way. The United Way support social agencies that provide services to ex-offenders and felons. Goodwill Industries has a proven record of hiring ex-offenders and felons as well as providing other services . You can get more information here:

http://www.goodwill.org/

Another solution is to apply for temporary employment. Many employers are in need of temporary help. Often temporary employees are hired permanently. Smaller independent agencies are a better choice than larger, nationally known ones. Independent agencies are free to hire anyone they choose and are more likely to hire felons and ex-offenders. Larger agencies often have to comply with the policies of the parent company.

One tactic that I often suggest sex offenders to use is to apply to smaller companies.  Smaller companies are less likely to use background expensive background checks.  On the application, leave the space where the criminal background question blank.  It is a chance the employer may not notice it.  If he does, be prepared to briefly talk about your conviction.

Sex offender jobs may be difficult to find but a little hard work will pay off.

I hope this helps

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military


Felon with sex offense wants to join the military
Found your website while searching "felon" info and thought I would take a chance.

When my son was 19, he had come home from college for the summer, earned his black belt in Tae kwon Do, and made the mistake of having a relationship with a 15 year old girl in his karate class. She was working on her black belt and had an immense crush on my son...and vice versa. They had known each other for several years--and were both very talented "karate kids."
Anyway, they broke it off when he went back to school--but remained friends.

The young lady went to counseling a year later for some unrelated family issues and revealed that she had a boyfriend a year ago and they had sex. Bingo...the therapist calls the state, the state arrests my son, who is now 20 almost 21, and presses charges...4 counts of sex with a minor. Neither girl nor her family pressed charges against my son. In addition, we were told that because he had recently earned his black belt degree that he was considered "someone of higher responsibility" and that is why the state decided to prosecute. I might add that he was in the process of applying for the Indiana State Trooper program--was almost there! BIG NIGHTMARE for our family since this son was the one who never drank, partied, smoked...just a good, sweet, loving kid and born again Christain... who did something really dumb based on emotion.

The deal was this, 6 months house arrest and 3 years probation which we have almost completed...without grumbling I might add. Felony reduced to misdemeanor as soon as probation ends actually on 9/16/10. He has been planning to join the military... to do good in the world and serve the country he loves. What are his chances? He talked to an recruiter (about 6 months ago) about Indiana air guard and was told not just no-- but never.
Felon with sex offense wants to join the military

I appreciate your time.


 Felon with sex offense wants to join the military



 I know quite a few young men in your son's same situation. The good news is that his charge will be downgraded to a misdemeanor.  From time to time the military grants waivers to recruits who have criminal records.  Most are moral waivers, which include some felonies and misdemeanors.

The only military branch offering waivers to ex-offenders is the Army. He may find more success there.  The Army recruiter will tell him exactly what to do to get the process started.  It is totally up to the Army to grant the waiver.

I hope this helps.
