My question involves expungements or pardons for the state of:
I was convicted of a felony in S.C. (burglary 3rd degree) when I was 17 under the YOA. The crime occurred when I was 17 I am now 27. I was told by my public defender (who was hired by the state because there was another defendant involved who also had a public defender) to plead guilty. I was not informed of the repercussions it would have on my life. My public defender has since been disbarred. I have served in the usmc and I have 2 associates degrees. Is there anything other than a pardon I can do to get this off my record? Appeal or misrepresentation? And if I get a pardon now can I get it expunged after the 15 year mark.
