Criminal Law/Sexual Assault, False Confession


my son admitted to sexual assault after hours of interigation, served time for said crime only to find out 9 years later that he was not the one who did the deed. Numberous people myself included heard first hand from young lady that my son did not assault her. He can not afford an atty and neither can I how can we get his record expunged and out of this sexual offender place that has ruined his life?


You message was a tad confusing. Are you saying the "victim" of the sexual assault has recanted her original statement and now says your son did not commit the offense? If so, you would have several avenues to pursue.

Depending on the reason(s) that the victim is now recanting her original identification of your son as the perpetrator, your son may very well have a cause of action against the "victim."

If your son admitted to the deed under improper police coercion, and that coercion was originally brought up before/during his trial, he might very well have a cause of action against the police department.

If there is now no doubt that your son did not commit this offense, it would be a pretty sure bet that the prosecutor would move for an expungement of his record in the "interest of justice."

You should consult with an attorney in your town, explain the facts to him and see if he/she would handle this on a contingency basis.
