Hey all,

I applied for a TWIC card and was turned down due to a five year old felony. I have an opportunity to join a union and I can't get in without the card.

It's an offshore job in New Jersey through a family member. It's basically a life changing opportunity but I just can't do it.

Does anyone have legal advice or experience with this?

Contact your local prosecutors office, or go online to your state webpage and check into Expungement..

Once the charge is expunged, it can no longer be held against you..

I'm going to have to do that. Thanks Semper.

I have a drunk in public and an assault one is over 7 years and the assault over 5 how likely is expungement?

If you did time for felony assault, its highly unlikely that you'll be able to get it expunged. But if you just served probation and paid all of your fines then you should be able to depending on what state you were convicted in.

Then sorry but I doubt you'll be able to get it expunged. The whole TWIC thing is ridiculous. 20 years ago I worked as a cook on the the biggest oil rigs in the world and we didn't have to have TWIC cards. Half of my crew were convicted felons, but now that we're living in the post-911 era your record has to be squeaky clean.

It's really lame especially considering the fact that there's 20 million felons.

Countries in Europe have laws against this type of discrimination if my options continue to run out like they are because I can't get a job at mcdonalds which would be pointless anyway I might have to consider trying to leave the country


I could have moved on with my life and start a family by now.

I've seen an expungement for "Attempted Murder"

It has everything to do with length of time, current character and references..

Never hurts to try

That sadly is the price you pay for crime that they warn us about. It will follow you thru life and limit a lot of things in your future. Prisons and jails are filled with those that now wish they didn't commit the crimes and now want a break....it doesn't always work out like that at all.
When you got the convictions...what did you think would be your future? Sorry...but someone convicted of a crime. Intentional or not respectfully friend...this is what they tell us about following you around your whole life.
I do wish you well and good luck getting what you can get cleaned up.
Best
MS

Something about your story stinks, It takes 3-6 weeks to get your twic approved but 2 weeks ago you claimed that you would be a supervisor of a great job but at the last minute lost it, then a few months back you had asked the fine members about working the fields and a couple of them offered to help but you never took their offer and here you are still looking for advise that you won't listen to anyway.

Just doesn't make any sense.

If you want people to mind their business then you should not post things on a public forum.
