hi, im new to the forum so forgive any mistakes regarding the rules.
in 2004 I was convicted of offences I can't disclose, I served my sentence, completed all programs amd probation appointments, moved to a new town, got a nice job, settled down and quietly got on with life. my convictiom became spent, my registration passed and I finally felt a free man, But then....
somebody at work decided to google everybody's names for a laugh and when my name was next, all the details of my conviction was there for all to see. they quickly vilified me and I instantly became the town's hot gossip. ive had to quit my job and leave home and now im having to start all over again.
it seems no matter what time has passed, how far you've come, you're never free from stigmas in your past.
