I dont have the documentation in front of me at the moment, will have to find it, but i will give the details i can recall.
At the age of 12 i was charged with sexual molestation of my 4 year old brother. I was innocent, but no one in my house hold believed me. When i was asked what i wished to plea, i chose guilty. As even my own mother did not believe me, why would the court. I was told that when i was 18 i would be able to apply for this to be removed from my record.
Apparently a few years after this, washington changed its laws and i am no longer able to get this removed from my record, and i am now required to register as a sex offender for life.
Now that i am 24 and my brother is 15, he admitted to me that he remembers what happened on that day, and what i was charged with never happened. He has explained what happened to my family... and now i am unsure what to do. I have been labeled a monster my entire life for something i did not commit. I lost my wife over this. I spent months in juvenile detention and years of counseling for something i never did.
So i guess my question is this. Is there any way to get something like this removed completely now that the "victim" admitted that the act never happened, even though i plead guilty to it? I was charged by the city/state, not by family. I will add more details at a later time if needed.
