I have wanted to travel overseas since I was a little kid and for some time I have been considering teaching English in Europe, most likely in the Czech Republic... Unfortunately I may end up with a felony conviction on my record in the near future. My offense was rather minor in my opinion and that of my lawyers' (actually not even illegal in most states) but the DA doesn't want to budge :cry: He has offered me a suspended sentence which is pretty much a get out of jail free card but I would get the felony conviction on my record. I have decided that if I can teach English in Europe like I want to with the record I will probably take the offer but if I can't ever travel/move out of the country I'm going to take it to trial. I was hoping I could get a hold of someone who knows something on the subject or knows who I can contact before I make a decision that will have a huge impact on my life (a huge amount of money for lawyers and possible time behind bars). Anyone know the details about visas/residency with a conviction? Thank you very much for your help!
