i pleaded guilty to a misdeamenor domestic violence 4 in washington state which occured dec 2008 and I was ordered to 24 months probation and a dv therapy course which lasted a year. I completed the dv therapy course and i was taken off of my probation only after 2 months and i also paid my fine. I'm trying to go back into the allied health field which i was already in prior to the incident. I dont know if being a veteran would help me get my record vacated or whatever i made a mistake and i have manned up, taken responsibility for my action and done everything needed to change my life now i would like to continue with my career but the criminal record is preventing that. now i live in california and i would like to get a job in the civil service department. is there any hope for me?
