State Legislature
United States of America

I feel that there should be a law passed that helps non violent offenders who have served their time, to be able to have their criminal record closed to non government entities.

Many of my family, friends and Americans are not given a real second chance once they have been released from prison or have served their sentence for non violent felony.

They are not able to find a real job, get assistance from government or even vote, so they are set up to fail, because if you cant find employment, what other choices do you have other than go back to a life of crime just to survive.

I believe once you have done your time, you have done your time.

Why should you penalized for life?

We, the undersigned, call the state legislature to pass a bill, preventing disclosure of any individual's non violent criminal history once they have served their time for the crime.
