We recently represented a client who had been charged with being a violent sex offender on school property. He had lost his job after state police appeared at his place of employment to make sure that his employer knew that he was a convicted sex offender. He began looking for new work, and a prospective employer asked for a copy of his high school transcript. Without thinking, he went directly to his high school guidance office to ask for a copy of the transcript. After receiving the document, he went directly from the guidance office to his car. A well-meaning employee at the high school recognized our client from the state sex offender database and called the police, who arrested him on the spot.
We were able to negotiate with the prosecution to resolve the charge for the time served when he was arrested. Our client also did not have to serve probation.
