Free Pardon Applications

Well to start off, i am now currently 24 years of age with a felony count of criminal conspiracy to commit armed robbery. My story starts back in 2008. I was hanging out with some of my friends and my cousin when i was asked to drop off my cousin and friends at his house so they could get a change of clothes and shower. I was the one with the car and the licence so i dropped them off. I was bored so i drove around for awhile trying to find something to do. About an hour later my cousin called me to pick them up. Not thinking anything of it, i agreed and picked them up. my cousin had a backpack which again i didnt think anything of because he always carried one with him. They asked to be dropped off in hazleton, i abliged and dropped them off. On the way back to my apartment i was pulled over by the police and asked if they could search my car. I agreed because i had nothing to hide. when they searched my car they found my cousins backpack with stolen merchendise. I was then arrested and taking to the police station. My codefendents on the statements they wrote said that i had planned this with then and my statement said that i had no idea what was going on. But because it was 3 against one the police believed that i knew about it. I got charged with a felony and spent 1 1/2 years in jail. I was 18 had no previous record and the judge sentanced me to the same time my cousin got, who was actually the one in the store with the weapon. I believe that was completly unfair, and i believe that the judge just wanted to make an example of me. I see cases like mine all the time, but with people that actually know what is going on get off with a slap on the wrist. I am a mother of a 5 year old, and since my release from jail i have not been able to get a job, to support him or myself. i have been living with family and they are helping, but i feellike a burden and i want to be the woman and take care of her child. Im looking into pardens and expungements but for a person that can not get a job, having to pay all these costs is impossible. I just want my life back.
