Can someone with a prior felony expunged to a misdemeanor become a peace officer in California?
No. Even though the record was expuinged, it means that it is not accessible to the PUBLIC. Law enforcement, the courts, government agencies and organizations that do background checks for security clearanaces still have access to them.
Will a past misdemeanor charge disqualify someone from being hired as a probation corrections or parole officer?
it depends! there are multiple factors that come into play, including: how long ago? what type of misdemeanor?if you were 18 or older? what have you done since.... have you gotten into more trouble since?and what state you want to be come a correctional officer in? your best bet is to look at the requirements your state has and dis-qualifiers it has. then also maybe talk to someone that works for the place you want…
Can a person who has been charged with a federal misdemeanor and is under probation stay with someone who has firearms?
In California, convicted drug felons cannot receive food stamps (or SNAP as it is now called). Not sure about other kinds of felonies. If someone has their record expunged, they can receive assistance again and will be eligible from the time that their record is expunged, provided that they meet all of the other requirements. the issue was addressed in an All County Letter dated 9/23/1999.
