Looking for Paralegal/Legal Assistant work in Colorado Springs, Colorado

I was a Paralegal/Legal Assistant in the Denver metro area for 15 years prior to being incarcerated for a law enforcement-initiated Internet "sting" operation. I was released from prison on 8/1/2018 without any further supervision, but have been unable to obtain employment, because I was in prison for 19 1/2 years (I'm 63 years old). Any suggestions about finding work? I relocated to Colorado Springs, since law enforcement told me to never return to the Denver area, or I will be harassed by them.
