Will harassment citation stay on my record?

Q: I was found guilty of a citation for harassment and was fined $100 and court cost. Will that go on my record. I worked for this private daycare and I quit after 1 month. And she was trying to hold my check so I told the owner to mail my check or I was going to call the state on her.

A: Yes, if convicted it will be on your record. You can expunge it after 5 years of arrest free behavior. You may consider appealing it if it is within 30 days of the conviction. What you describe really does not sound like harassment to me.

If you feel like this issue relates to you, or a problem that you are experiencing, please contact me so that we can discuss your situation.
