Felony Expungement After 10 Years

    1. Monchelo Moffitt
    2. Petition by

      Monchelo Moffitt

      AL

To whom it may concern, My name is Monchelo Moffitt, and against the State of Alabama I would like to petition for a bill to be passed that may expunge a felony after 10 years. In the State of Alabama we have an equal employment opportunity law that Alabama does not follow. Individuals with
felony convictions are treated like Aliens in the State of Alabama. In the State of Alabama, individuals with felony convictions are being charged
and treated in a way that should be called (double jeopardy). In the State of Alabama, convicted felons are sentenced to time in prison to fight
for there lives. For some, after completing this harsh time in an Alabama prison, probation and fees are due which should actually be considered
as (double jeopardy). Convicted felons are being charged in and outside of the court system. In the State of Alabama a sentence is given with the
opportunity to be released as a free man but when released in the State of Alabama, a felony record makes you an unfree man. Convicted felons
are not free to work where they may, convicted felons are not free to vote as they please, and convicted felons are not free to roam as they wish.
A felony record for jobs to see is (double jeopardy,) its like being tryed by another jury. In the State of Alabama a "Human Being" with a felony
record is not given an equal employment opportunity which by law is discrimination.

      How can society expect that anyone who has been labeled a convicted felon to improve their quality of life, provide for their family or become a productive citizen and give back to the community when the community does not provide jobs to people who have been labeled a "felon". We all are human and as humans we want to work to better ourselves and build a good, solid life. Breaking the law is wrong, there is no doubt but once the punishments have been set and met it is up to "us" the citizens to welcome those trying to start over and build a good life for themselves and their family. This is where society fails and will continue to fail unless individuals change their thoughts and perceptions based on the people not the terminally labeled group.

      My son has been clean and pardoned by SC for over 11 years. It's time for SC & other states to expunge records and let men & women regain their lives.
