I don't know WI law, but is it possible for you to have the conviction expunged?
- 0Apr 13, '13 by mrsveeI live in California and have worked as a CNA. I too have a record from about 20 years ago ..misdemeanor petty theft. I've worked for a registry and a couple of hospitals. Just recently, I was trying to get a job in an assisted and independent living facility but it looks like my criminal background is preventing me from working in these facilities. I'm trying to find out how to get my record expunged but don't know where to start. You should probably contact the boards from those specific states to get advice.
- 0Apr 22, '13 by sheebsyIn order for you to get your crime expunged you have to go the courts and pick up a packet from the DA,then you have to fill it out and have someone turn it in. You would just be submitting a request for it to get expunged, they would have to approve it, and then they will let you know whether or not they are allowing you to expunge it from your record.
