I think Freelancing is a bad choice for a new dev. You need more experience first.

Smaller companies (less than 50 people) don't have the super strict requirements of large companies and are a wonderful place to learn skills. My happiest (and longest term) positions are with small companies.

As a fellow developer, the only think I truly care about with my co-workers is if they do a good job at work. If you worked with me, I would care that you carry your weight on the team (equivalent to your position). Then as I got to know you, chances are you're a decent person and I would like that about you too. Your past is behind you, and what you do today makes more of a difference.

Go apply and somebody will pick you up. Then you can prove you're the person you say you are!
