My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky
The issue my son's father and I are facing is that he is attending anger management / perp offender classes for Domestic Violence. He was charged with Felony Assault and Battery. He accepted a plea bargain of three years probation and 3 years suspended jail time. This all took place a year ago. Fast forward to today. He is now working a job on an assembly line in a factory for a reputable car manufacturer. He's attending his classes paying his child support accepting fault for what he did and trying to rebuild his life and our family. The problem we have is that he's just a temporary employee. He works hard never misses or is late for work and he really wants to get hired on permanently. Unfortunately due to his criminal record we're both afraid that he won't be able to be hired and will be determined uneligible due to this Felony of domestic violence. At least we've been told that he might be and basically that he can't get a job to provide for our family with that felony on his record. Thus not only will he suffer but so will I and so will our son since I do receive Child Support and would be depending on his income financially regardless of if we're together or not. I actually want us to be together but it seems like our lives are pretty much ruined by his actions and that regardless of the change he's made we will all still suffer. Is this true? Or can he still get a job other than flipping hamburgers? I feel like I'm being punished for pressing charges I just wanna beat my head against a wall.........like this.
