i got a felony in 2000 in new york city for Obstruction of Justice, Hindering prosecution, and interfering with emeregency call. i won't get into details about how i got these charges. but as my name says, i was in the wrong place at the wrong time...at work in a night club... and blamed for what happened by the actual persons involved.
i served no jail time or probation and the case went on for 2 years. basically, the assistant D.A. kept the charges eventhough they knew i was innocent in order to get information about the persons other activities. in return for my cooperation and if i stayed out of trouble, i would get no jail time. mind you, i never got into trouble before.
anyway, i read the criminal procedure law section for ny state. but i still have some questions. it seems that now as i look for work, it is coming up in the background check. can i get these charges expunged or are they already sealed but have been made public before hand.
i think i read on here that it can't be expunge. is that true. am i destined to have this on my record forever...or come up if someone does a background check.
