Amen !!! I myself am under the same situation. I have felonies
over 6 years old and still paying for those crimes. HOW sad that
this use to be the home of the free but those days are LONG
BEHIND us. my g/f herself has a 4 year old false I.D felony and
is having a hard time for that alone. We as Amerincans must do
something about this miscarriage of justice... Sincerely,Angel
