    Default False Child Abuse Charge

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    I was a single parent to 2 sons, 13 years ago. My son got into a lot of trouble in Jr High School. On the way home from school, I was so angry that I threatened to "give him a whuppin ". When we arrived home I told him to go to his room. I was so tired and stressed because of this and other problems, but I fell asleep on the couch. I do not know how long I slept, but was awakened by a police officer and arrested for child abuse. It seems my son called while I was asleep because he was scared because I had threatened to "whip him".

    I was takened to jail and threatened with a long jail time since I had prior domestic violence issues. Since I had another son at home, and a young daughter by another lady, I took the advise of a public defender and pled no contest. Later, CPS found out that my son had lied and that I had not touched him. I was asked if I wanted him returned to my home, but I refused. My son was a troubled child, at that time, I felt he was too much for me to handle. I thought every thing was handled and forgot about my no contest plea.

    Years later I married the mother of my daughter. My new wife was a licensed foster parent. Due to my history and marriage to me, her foster license has been revolked and she is in tears because she always wanted a large family.

    Is there anything I can do now to clear my record? Should I request post conviction petition or ask that the record be expunged?

    Default Re: False Child Abuse Charge

    You didn't tell us your conviction charge. But you chose to raise your hand, under oath, and tell the judge you committed child abuse.

    What was your exact conviction charge?
