Seventy-Five Dollars And A Dream
Seems in Kansas that if you are convicted of a misdemeanor, even those that involve sexual crimes, all it costs to expunge your conviction is seventy five dollars. And a good attorney.
As reported here Monday, serial masturbator Mychael Willon was arrested and pleaded no contest to a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior in a Wichita KS bookstore in 1989 and 1990. But in Willon's world it never happened.
The crack team here at SBSB has learned through an excellent source, though yet to have verified, that Mychael Willon had his conviction, yes pleading no contest is the same as a guilty plea, expunged. But you ask, "Teacher in the Bronx, how can this be?" Well in Kansas, it be, and it is.
The crack team at SBSB as learned that it costs just seventy-five dollars to file a motion to have your record expunged. It is reviewed by the court and then a hearing is held, and a judge then rules on the motion. That quick, that simple. And, I am sure, that having a well competent, well connected attorney helps smooth the way towards expungment.
But it does not change what happened. Willon was caught with his proverbial pants down in that Wichita KS adult bookstore in 1989. Willon's character is in question here. Just not with this instance, but with the fake doctorate as well.
Food for thought. If a NYC teacher did what Willon did, how fast would that teacher be on the front page of the NY Post, and in the Rubber Room?
