Curious…

Any PFRs been able to land a state or county job after being convicted? I recently lost my job of nearly 7 years and recently began applying for jobs. I have been intentionally not applying to any gov’t jobs as I know they typically do deep dive background checks (Live scan, etc) that go beyond the usual 7 years. What sucks is there are a lot of jobs right now, with good pay and benefits, that are with county or city agencies. I have a CP conviction from 2013. Reduced to misdemeanor and expunged in 2017. I have a letter from my attorney from back then that explains police found 3 illegal files in a porn hoard of nearly 2TB that I amassed using P2P.

Wondering if any PFRs have tried to get some sort of gov’t job and what the outcome was after the background check. Anybody manage to get hired? The type of job I would be applying for would put me behind a computer screen And not dealing with the public. Trying to figure out if I have any chance in hell.

I know teacher student incidents have been on the raise, but this is a new one from last month you’ll have to look up online (didn’t post link)…geez!

Police catch naked teacher in car with undressed student after short pursuit, crash (NEB)

I doubt she admitted to what they she said… Probably used other words.

Hoping for a Supreme Court win in June ( Chevron)
.if that domino falls as it should, how long would it take to start the challenges on our end?

Have you guys checked out the fancy new hi-tech upgrade for the “Megans law” website, it’s kinda scary how simple and fast it is.
I gotta get off this website by any means necessary

This just in:
LA County puts 66 probation officers on leave for misconduct including sexual abuse, excessive force
Of course, we already know that many who are in trusted positions are the ones misusing that trust. But we are the ones the public needs to be aware of? I wonder if they will be added to the registry since they are being accused or charged of sexual misconduct in both adult and juvenile division. I am sure this is just one of MANY such incidences across the country. The registry needs to go, or people like this need to be added.

Please give me your opinion, I am a tier 1 and have been on the Michigan registry for 13 years. My case was federal, I’ve paid a quality attorney to submit a request for removal from the registry a year ago. A month ago a federal judge signed the order for my removal. My attorney says we now need a Michigan state judge to sign removal order. Do you think the Michigan state police will accept an order from a federal judge ??

I am visiting CA this summer and would like to start scoping out housing (my five year plan has me moving to CA, but the universe has laughed at my plans in the past so who knows). I know there are no residency restrictions thanks to Janice, but I often hear of counties / cities that are worse in terms of compliance checks and harassment like Riverside, San Diego, and LA. Can you CA residents please give me a list of areas to stay away from? Conversely, if anyone has a positive experience in their county, I would like to hear about that too.

This would be housing for me, but I need to be ready for my son to live with me if his housing goes bad. We are clear of the residency restriction for the moment, but if a day care goes up in a vacant store front, we will have to sell. And I am hearing other parts of IL are trying to increase the restriction to more than 500 feet, so that would really squeeze us out.

Are there any states that have declared the sex offender registry as punishment?
