The clerk haven't entered in the system that my probation was second chance, it just states probation, and the case reflect on my background so finding employment is hard.
Second chance probation under 730 ILCS 5/5-6-3.4, allows an individual to be sentenced without a judgment entering on certain qualified felony offenses. The exact language of the statute states "the court shall enter an order specifying a period of probation...and shall defer further proceedings in the case until the conclusion..." 730 ILCS 5/5-6-3.4(b). I would double check your sentencing order to make sure that you did in fact get the second chance probation, but even if you did, the statute doesn't say anything about your case being impounded or scrubbed from law enforcement database. Law enforcement database may show the disposition of your case even if a conviction has not been entered. So while you may have gotten the benefit of the probation, it's not like your case has disappeared and expunged. You can certainly speak to an attorney about these issues but you must satisfactorily complete your probation first.
