Help w/past convictions

I was convicted of indecency w/child in 1985 ( my son) and 1991 ( my daughter) . I have had regrets on what life I created for them from my actions. I did 33 months in state prison gone through rehab and taken lie detectors. I have been told that if anyone can succeed in life after what I.ve done I can. The parole officer Ms. Miller in Fort worth and my counselor Kranz in Fort Worth ( over *** offenders rehab) said that I can go on with my life and that I can get married and start a new Life which I have ( I've been married for seven years and have a 5 year old daughter). The problem is now I am between finding a job and my criminal record keeps coming up. I was told through a registration office that since I haven't done any wrong for so long that I should be able to get my record cleared from the employers and not have to register. I am having a terrible time now unemployed and every time I go for an interview my background comes up and that's the last I here from anyone. Can anyone help with this with any legal advice.

Record cleared through the employer (what does that mean??) and NOT have to register----you mean not register as a s3x offender?? Who told you this??

Participation in the s3xual offenders resistry is not conditional on good behavior. I don't know who told you otherwise, but that is incorrect.

I am afraid that as an employer, I wouldn't want to hire someone who was a registered s3x offender, either, regardless of how long it's been since they 'did anything wrong'. Hiring a convicted s3x offender, regardless of how long it may have been could open an employer up to liability for obvious reasons.

I don't know where you got that bit of information, but it is my personal opinion you cannot choose to NOT register as a s3xual offender if, in fact, you have been required to do so in the past.

If I am misunderstanding your posting, please clarify.
