      because of a teenage mistake being a misdimeanor which never caused a problem my whole life, being a sealed case, now comes up and is reported to potential employers costing me a job and tarnishing a good name I spent building over 31 years. This ISNT right!!!

      Every person needs a second chance in life beside,why should they carry the burden of a crime they did and paid for it many years ago? We just need to move on. Its funny how the system meant once to do justice end up abusing those who already paid for their crime.

      because I was framed by NYPD detectives back in the spring of 1990 for a crime i didn't commit, the most serious charge I have in my record. and in 2010 my brother who is a cop had to come to my defense to clear my name , again for something the cops tried to accuse me of doing. as a result of having a brother in law enforcement the detectives swept it under the rug. and not only because I didn't do this crime but also to clear the way for me to become a registered nurse.

      This is extremely important for those Men and Women who have served half of their lives in prison to later have their conviction overturned because of advanced DNA techniques. This is why the records should be expunged but the down side of this is, although the records are sealed how does one explain the huge gap in their lives when searching for work?

      Individuals who have been convicted of non-violent, non-sexual misdemeanors, who have paid their debt to society and are striving to lead good, productive lives should be given the chance to do so without continuing to have to carry the baggage of an act that they regret having committed in the past.
