In 1994 I was convicted of a car jacking charged with kidnapping 1
robbery 1 with a deadly weapon.
I spent 6 plus years in doc.
I was a and am a mother of 3 boys.
that seems like another life to me now and would take a book to explain.
since my release in 2001 i have never commited a crime.
I made a promise to myself that I would work three jobs if I had to to take care of my family.
my point is Im not the same person anymore and basically rehabilitated myself.
for the last 2 years I have been planning a non profit business and have just about finished my budiness plan ,when someone asked me a question I had never thought of ...
the nonprofit would be geared toward children of incarserated parents.
the question was can a person who has been convicted of those charges work with kids?
At first I didnt think it would be a problem but now I am wondering myself if it would matter?

IT COULD. THE THING TO DO IS LOOK INTO HAVING THE CHARGES "EXPUNGED" FROM YOUR RECORD. IF YOU COMPLETED ALL TERMS OF SENTENCE/PAROLE/ETC AND HAVE KEPT YOUR NOSE CLEAN THERE IS A POSSIBILITY TO CLEAR IT UP. SEE A GOOD ATTORNEY FOR A MORE SPECIFIC ANSWER.
