Default Mississippy Visitation - felony check

I was convicted of welfare fraud in California in 2004 I pled guilty and was told once I paid the overpayment of $808 it would be knocked down to a misdemeanor...I never served anytime just paid the money back...will this stop me from getting approved to visit?

Welcome to Prison Talk. Have you ever confirmed that the charges were reduced? You can do your own criminal records check to see what Mississippi will find.

I don't know about your State, but many systems are only worried about if you are currently on parole or probation, not about your criminal history.

Thanks for the reply, no I have not checked on the reduction. How can I do the check myself?

Google "how to check my criminal record". Some claim to be "free" searches, but others charge. Lots of options.

If your record hasn't been corrected (it probably has) you can write to the clerk of the court and ask that it be fixed.

If the conviction still stands on your record as a felony, then you will not be allowed to visit. A felony conviction is a disqualifier for inmate visitation.
