Where can former felon's find work in Louisa?

Ive a friend who was convicted back in 03'. Part of his conviction was to complete an ASAP program as well as a Region Ten program, both of which he did successfully. I won't go into what he was convicted on but will say he has learned a lesson in regards to the entire experience. He had a job, but was laid off and has been clawing his way trying to find another, but isn't having any luck in his search due to his pox marked back ground. No one wants to be affiliated by association to him because of this former conviction. He has a family he is trying to support and needs a job in order to continue to support them. He wants to keep to Louisa because of transportation issues as he only has one vehicle but his children have needs that will make it hard for their mother to handle without a vehicle. So I was wondering, who in Louisa will give a guy a second chance? It seems very unfair that he has his back ground held against him yet, I see formerly convicted misdemeanors and felon's who were convicted on worse then what he was charged with get jobs in the most mediocre of places yet he gets turned away. Is there any one left who believes in second chances out there?

Depends on what the charge was against your friend.
Folks in Louisa are a tough bunch; hard to forgive or forget.
I'd recommend he and his family relocate to another county in the area.
Lots of small minds here.
Good luck to your friend.

As much as I agree Pete, it isn't exactly that easy a solution for him and his family to relocate. In order to even think of doing that would mean he and his wife need work. Both have had no luck. With her Im shocked considering she has no past law problems at all. What Im finding overly annoying is Ive seen MANY ex-convicts here in Louisa find employment, knowing many of their back ground activities, Im shocked because his past conviction doesn't even touch how bad many of the other former convicts back grounds are. Even more is that he is literally a native son to the county.
