Hello. I was accused of making a falsified court document. I was in Missouri at the time, the document(s) in question (Marriage license, annulment) were handed over to the attorney of my girlfriend at the time in Arkansas, where she was due in court. The papers said they were from a California court. I was arrested at my home in Missouri, extradited to California and forced into a plea bargain with the threat of 14 years if I fought it. I had never been in trouble in my life and was scared, so I signed it. I now have a felony on my record. It was 7 years ago. It is keeping me from providing for my wife and child here in Missouri today. Was this a legal use of the courts jurisdiction? Do I have any chance of having it removed from my record? I was NEVER in California.
