How can my ex boyfriend get "child molester" off his record?
We were a couple when I was 16 and he was 19. I became pregnant by him when I was 17 (still not a legal adult) and he was 21. Thinking I would have a baby I then realized I was not ready, neither one of us was, so I decided to have an abortion and I did. Now on his record says that he is a child molester because I was underage and now this is interfering with him getting a job or going to school.
He would have been arrested and gone through the criminal process. He was tried and convicted as a sex offender and unfortunately that is an issue that is not up to you to fix. You can, however, check with him and see if he is able to appeal this decision or see if he can obtain criminal counsel to check into possible expungements or post-conviction lessening of this crime to something else that doesn't require sex offender registration. Unfortunately, this is really a strict liability crime in California; no intent to have sexual relations with a minor needs to be present. It is simply a matter of the fact you were underage and he was not. You can certainly look into criminal defense attorneys yourself. You can also check these attorneys records at the California Bar website to ensure they do not have a disciplinary record with the State Bar. Good luck to you and keep in mind, sometimes hearing from the victim in these types of situations may help.
