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.

Can Expungement help Me get a Job as a Nurse?

 Can Expungement help Me get a Job as a Nurse?


Can Expungement help Me get a Job as a Nurse?
Hi,
And thank you for reading my email. I am a 35 yr old mother who committed a mistake years ago and still today it haunts me.

In the year of 2011 I was in need of a job and came across a guy in school who said he was security guard for a masseuse. Later on he said she was hiring and I'll learn as I go. We met and had a conversation. She explained very little and as we went for a ride gave me a receipt book and said we would talk about it more in a lobby of a hotel where she was staying as she is very busy and travels most of her time. Also asked me to go with security guy to collect payment as she would order food for us.

Story short, I knocked on door with security standing by elevator.  As I walk in, the gentleman hands me money and I don't accept but ask if before I can use restroom. I had a long ride. He replies yes. As I open door, I get bum rushed by the cops and arrested for prostitution.  I had nothing illegal or dressed provocative. The security left and the lady turned phone off. I was sent to county jail for three days and couldn't call family to bail me out with charges like that. In Long Island where it happened, fought it for a year and lowered it down from prostitution felony to misdemeanor violation/indecent exposure.

It's now 2018. Plz, do you think such a case can get expunged in NYC? I went to college have associates in paralegal. Would a violation be shown? I have friend lawyer and through nexus lexus wont show up criminal record but when I sent my fingerprint to FBI, saw that even if it got lowered to violation still shows I got arrested for prostitution.

I want to become a nurse. I don't drink or do drugs. I have 4 kids 17-15-8 and two months, single mom two honor roll kids. Pls, I know its a long story. Pls, I need your advice for 2015 to be a better year. I'm always afraid to go to interview I feel they would Know and don't know if they will believe my story. My life is over.

Can Expungement help Me get a Job as a Nurse?


Hello,
I am not a legal professional, but to my knowledge, the State of New York allows for the sealing of certain convictions under certain circumstances.  I suggest that you speak to a legal professional about this for a more definitive answer.

You can contact the Legal Action Center for more information.  You can reach them here:
http://lac.org/index.php/lac/legal_services

For those outside of New Your state, I suggest contacting you local legal aid office.  There you can get information on expungement. sealing of records and Certificates of Rehabilitation in your state.  You may even qualify for low-cost or even no cost assistance.

Since you want to be a nurse, you will need to be licensed by the state and your record will come up.  Don't give up hope.  In the state of New York, you may be eligible for a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities or Certificate of Good Conduct.  These certificates serve as proof to the state that ex-offenders and felons have been rehabilitated and may help you to be licensed.

Felon wants Job as an Addiction Counselor

Felon wants job as an Addiction Counselor



 Felon wants job as an Addiction Counselor
Dear Sir or Madam,

I came across this email on your website as I am looking for ways to help my adult son.  He is a heroin addict in recovery.  He wants to become an addiction counselor, but we are struggling to find someone to get advice from.  He is very intelligent and has a bachelor's in psych.  He wants to get his MS and applied to the program at our local university, but was turned down based on the felony, telling him they don't want him to end up with more student loans, as the licensing bd in Ohio will not grant him a license. He is very depressed, feeling that he will never be able to do what he wants to do.

He has of course had great difficulty finding any work.  He was just hired to do heavy lifting in a warehouse for low pay.  He's worked there a week, and has put in 50 hours.  He's 28, with back and foot problems, and has been coming home in great pain.  This has added to the feeling that he will never get a good job, will never be able to live on his own, marry one day, and support a family.  It doesn't help that he has a brother who is an attorney, and a sister in medical school. He would be happy to get a lesser job as a case aid or similar position so that he can prove himself.

He tells me he has heard of other drug counselors who were felons, but we can't find one for him to talk to. There is little hope of having his record expunged because he has two misdemeanor charges for behavior when he was using (non violent) , plus the felony for use.  That excludes you from expungement in Ohio.  Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,

Trying to help without enabling,

Demi

Hello Demi,

I know of  addiction counselors who have criminal records, but that is here in NJ.  My suggestion is to contact the local United Way.  The United Way supports an array of social assistance programs.  Perhaps they can refer you to a rehab center they are affiliated with.  Your son could probably
Felon wants job as an Addiction Counselor volunteer a few hours per week to acquaint himself with the facility and work with counselors.  I am sure he will meet someone who could steer him in the right direction.  He could possibly find employment opportunities within one of the agencies the United Way supports.

I hope this helps
