If I may ask, in which parts of SWVA are you or the person this is for wishing to reside and work? I'm only asking before I list any places that may not be applicable. You may want to try construction or fast food in whichever area you choose. Good luck!

There is no such list I am aware of. I'm sorry you will have to pick up the phone and call companies and ask them, or go to visit them in person. I know most fast food places will hire some ex felons. Just be prepared to answer questions about your incarceration very truthfully. Be up front about it. They will appreciate it. Good luck!

There is no such thing as an ex-felon. Once you are a felon you are always a felon. Ex-convict may be the term you were going for.

Aside from that... I wish you the best of luck!

You're an a$$. He/she knows what they are and doesn't need corrected gramatically. I'm a local business owner and would love to help but unfortunately times are too tough. I just wanted to say that I'd be much more willing to hire an ex-con than someone who served as an officer. I just feel that there would be less problems since chances are the ex-con is much more honest. At least they have the stones to admit they've done wrong and are trying to change that. Have you ever admitted to your wrongdoing or do you just troll topix to find people to kick while they're down?

You are the ass. A dumb ass. No one else took my comment out of context as you did. I was not kicking anyone while they are down. Simply trying to help as they DO need to be corrected. I would say most potential employers would laugh at someone who said they were an ex-felon. Just trying to get the person 1 more + instead of 1 more -.

What if your sentence is overturned?
What if you receive a pardon?
What if the sentence is nullified?

I think those things would make you an ex-felon

Ummm, technically, yes you would, however if any of the above were to occur then you also would NOT have a criminal history for a perspective employer to find and therefore there would be no reason to be having this discussion. I seriously doubt this is the case.

And once your criminal history is expunged then you would NOT be an ex-felon (since there is no such thing) you would just be ?nothing?. An average ordinary job applicant.

For some reason, I don't believe you. The employers that would laugh at this person for calling themselves an ex-felon instead of an ex-con would never hire the person anyways. If you were really trying to help, you would've gave some information as to where they should put in a job app instead of correcting the terminology. Anyways, since I am of no help to this person either, I will not take up anymore of this thread.

If you are an ex-felon, then any company would consider hiring you since you are not longer convicted.

If you meant to say an ex convict I think google would be a better resource than topix. I will also encourage an expungement of your record, any first time convict is entitled to an expungement as long as it was not a crime of violence.

As for the self admitted business owner above, I can see why times are hard for you. It's not your business that is making it tough at times, it's you idiot!!

Not true! You have to receive an Absolute Pardon from the Governor BEFORE you can petition the court to expunge your record. Absolute Pardons are rarely given, and are only given if, well just read this for yourself...

An absolute pardon the rarest type of pardon may be granted when the Governor is convinced that the petitioner is innocent of the charge for which he or she was convicted. However, the petitioner must have pleaded Not Guilty throughout the judicial process in order to be eligible for an absolute pardon, and all judicial appeals and other remedies must be exhausted before appealing to the Governor.

Not being able to get a job should be your punishment as well
