My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington/Arizona
When I was 18, around December of 2005, I aided my friend in stealing beer from a convenience store in Arizona. Not only did this incredibly stupid night haunt me for the rest of my life, but it's also keeping me from finding a job. I need to figure out what to do to get out of this.
- How can I find the exact date of my misdemeanor? It was a long time ago, and I don't remember the exact date.
- In Washington, after 7 years can a company still deny me a job for having a misdemeanor? (Do I need to report I have one after 7 years?)
- How can I go about getting this expunged? Since I don't live in the state it occurred is this a problem?
- What does getting a record expunged involve? Does it cost anything, do I have to do community service?
I just need help getting my life on track. This misdemeanor is horrifying. I appreciate any help you can spare. Thank you!
