incarcerated as a minor at 18 charged with felony joyride misdemeanor paraphernalia
(PA MD VA)
incarcerated as a minor at 18 charged with felony joyride misdemeanor paraphernalia I am now 26 years old.
i made the choice to talk to the police about the incident only because i felt burdened and wanted to repent of the lifestyle i was stuck in as a kid.
I wanted out and wanted a better life, not knowing i probably had it good in juvi. well for a joyride with two friends of mine, I was the only one convicted of a felony for it and I have spent the last 8 years hating life trying to figure out how to put it all behind me as neatly as possible.
The other parties involved have probably completely forgot by now and its irrelevant to them but i think about this everyday. The cop told me after i gave my statement.... "now the recording is over i want to tell u, I was no angel when I was a "Kid" but u can get past this".... 8 years later hoping i don't have to go thru this for another 10 years.
I have not been able to get a good paying job and my relationship with my wife and children has greatly suffered. I lived in my car for a year straight. I basically lived like a trucker without any of the pay and benefits.
I showered at the gym and slept in my car in 12 below without room to stretch out and get comfortable. being homeless is very hard, mentally and physically. Being a trucker would be like heaven on earth for me.
I plan to try and join the military if all else fails as a motortransport operator. would need an 85 I am currently taking classes towards a bachelors in logistics and transportation.
I hope some good can come out of this.
I was planning to go to cdl school in the spring but all the horror stories of people not being able to get a job until 5 ten years after conviction is hurting me.
I admitted guilt from within a juvenile detention facility, probably without being read my rights, and was thrown out on the street where I could not make it back around to be convicted until i was 24.
All i wanted was a better life and it became worse. been crime free since!! I know there is no better option for me than trucking. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!
