Living with 290 Unlike most post on the subject, I am not going to share, much, details about my crime, except I pleaded to 1 count 288(a) and four counts 647.6 in 1989 and I received some jail time, SO Treatment and 5 years probation, which I deserved.
I was able to keep my government job and after becoming adults, my victims voluntarily sought me and we have been reconciled. My conviction was “Set-a side” and I have a “Expungement” and “COR” all before 1997. Therefore, my punishment was light and fare. As of this day, I have maintained an clean criminal record.
The 290 was fairly easy until 1996, when I had to report annually to the PD and in 2000, when I was listed on line. Since most of local knew about my situation this was no shocker to them. In 2004 I got a new boss and he found out that I was a 290 he started to harass me and made very difficult for me do my job until my retirement in 2005. In 2006 I married a Filipino woman, whom I have known since 1991. We have been to the Philippines a few times visiting family, prior to 2012 and with no entry issues. In 2012 my wife, open a restaurant and I helped her run the business. We was doing very well until a competitor restaurant found out that I was a 290, the owner printed posters and place them several businesses in town. Yreka is a small city of <10,000 and it did not take long before people stop coming. In April, 2014 we have closed the business.
Because of my last boss, the business failure and not be able to travel to the Philippines with my wife, anymore. California Megan’s Law is a continuous and greater punishment than my original sentence.
