Honorable Legislators, Supplementing my previous Email to you regarding lack of employment opportunities for individuals who have served time in prison for previous bad choices. Some cities have removed the question from job application forms, "Have you ever served time as a felon"? I believe this is unconstitutional, and should be eliminated State wide by Legislation. This is an ongoing continuous sentence for life. A person is handicapped, even though he served his time, has changed his life style, gone through the parole system, gone back to school, received honors and a college degree. I have been informed that there is an additional ten year sentence before an individual can APPLY to have his/or her record expunged. ONE SIZE FITS ALL// Murders, Bank robbers, sex offenders and thieves. There should be a system of review on an individual basis, for a persons character change and accomplishments; not having this hanging over his head for a certain time period. There are probably other persons handicapped under similar restrictions who need help from the judicial system of our State, who would appreciate your help for change. Respectfully, Robert (Bob) Wright 1010 N. 700 W. Orem, Utah 84057 801-226-0862 Email
