Hi, I am trying to help my brother get something off his criminal record that he got a bit over 10 years ago. It is stopping him from getting a job anywhere but a factory (which is planning on closing down soon). He would actually love to also go to uni so I think if we can get this silly thing off his record he will be better involved in society. Can anyone give me advice on how to go about this? It was an weapons offence (as in he had pepper spray for self protection which he didn't know was illegal in Australia). Any help would be appreciated. We are just not sure where to start and which type of lawyer we would need to see.
