I’ve seen some posts on here about those looking for a job and trying to overcome a criminal record. I just want you to know that there IS hope for you! My brother made some mistakes and spent five years in jail. It was hard when he got out but he eventually landed a job as a clerk… at the very court where he was originally sentenced!
Don’t give up. Redemption is possible.
I have a felony conviction from 1/2016. Where can I apply at I have 2 kids 3 and 6 and it seems like I cannot pass a background check. I have a very strong customer service background and just need to be able to get my foot in the door somewhere in the Cleveland, Ohio area

Hey Folks, I just spent 21 years in the clink. I'm 43, motivated and very physically fit. I have my own truck, transportation is not an issue. My issues is, I'm a violent offender! There is nothing worst than being known as a violent felon, even though (statistically speaking) violent offenders are far less likely to re-offend. Property crime criminals and drug offenders are faaaaar more likely to re-offend and "become" VIOLENT, and yet, they are overwhelmingly selected for jobs, while violent offenders don't even get a second look. I understand the stigma all to well, but folks, just because you see the word "ASSAULT" it doesn't actually mean there was "REAL" violence. It only means there was physical contact. You could've shoved someone, refused to place your hands behind your back to be cuffed-up, in-which case, they had to place their hands on you and if you tried to resist (in anyway) that's an assault, normally they intentionally charge you with an assault crime, just to force you to plead guilty to resisting arrest. I hate the fact that I'm a statistic! I want to be a success story and I'm doing everything I possibly can to increase my level of success. If you have an words of advise, offers of help, mentoring, resource networking, etc, please feel free to contact me either here or via e-mail at ---> email@example.com Thanks for the platform and opportunity to share my thoughts. Now I'm going to enjoy some PIZZA!!!
