Over 4 years ago, I was 19, I was arrested for statutory rape. She was my girlfriend, she was then 16. It started as a highschool romance, we went to the same highschool together, rode the bus together, and we had been seeing each other for about a year leading to the arrest. They also lived a block away. I showed up in court but DA did not file charges due to "lack of sufficient evidence". Recently I learned that I could file a petition to seal/destroy the arrest record, I filed it, but it was denied. This arrest had prevented me from my desire to join the military a few years ago, had tormented and stopped me from getting a job and moving on with my life, and had greatly affected my parents as well. Do I have any other recourse in order to seal/destroy the arrest record?
