If it asks "Have you ever been convicted of a felony"... Then you have to answer yes forever. If it asks "Have you been convicted of a felony in the past 7 yrs" then you only have to answer yes for 7 years.
if there are no other cases, then NO
Depends on the application. If it stipulates a time period then only within that time period. Example: Have you been convicted of a felony in the last 7 years? In the above example if you were convicted of a felony 5 years ago you have to answer yes. If you were convicted of a felony 10 years ago you can answer no. If the question asks "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" and you have, reguardless of the amount of time that has passed, then you have to answer yes.
a misdemenor ISNT considered a crime The correct answer is YES. If the question is have you been convicted of a crime. If the question is have you been convicted of a felony then your answer should be no.
Generally a person who has been convicted of a felony is well aware of the fact. If you have been convicted, answer yes. If you have not, answer no.
hey did you find an answer to your question?
No it is not a felony. But if they do a back ground check they will see the felony and question you about it.
If you have not been convicted, you are NOT a felon.
If you have a pending felony case, no. If you've been convicted of a felony, no. If you've been acquitted of a felony, then you can.
you say 'no'. you are not convicted of felony until the court convicts you. swapna
No, those questions want to know about the final disposition of the case. You may have been charged with a felony but convicted of a misdemeanor. Therefore, you're not a felon.
Can a person run for congress if they have been convicted of a felony offense? And, can a Congressman continue to serve if he/she is convicted of a felony offense? Michael
Say yes, Would like to dicuss in interview.
Answer the question as yes on your application and give all of the information regarding the status of the case. You are innocent until proven guilty. At least then, you have answered truthfully, and will not be fired for a falsehood.
Yes. They can also refuse felons for jobs, loans, et cetera.
Be truthful. That's what your potential employer wants. Honesty! You can explain what happened, and about the expongment, and all the rest. But if you lie on the application, you could be fired for it.
Here is the rest of my question. In 2009 i have received a Misdemeanor class C in Illinois. Case dismissed after doing 30 hrs of community service and 6 months of court supervision. I try to apply to on of the Universities in Florida and I have found a question on a application "Have you ever been charged with or convicted of a felony"? What should i answer ... YES or NO ?I would be inclined to answer NO for two reasons, one that the charges appear to have been withdrawn, and two, that you were charged with a Misdemeanor, not a Felony. In any case, you should be able to check your own criminal record to see what it says. Also, if the charges were laid before your 18'th birthday, you can probably have the record wiped clean, if it has not already been done.
An illegal person who has been convicted can't get a visa for life, but all depends what kind of felony he had committed
The original answer (which is deceiving) is listed below in brackets. To answer the question, if you want to have any chance of actually getting hired, then lie about any convictions you have and if you get hired and your employer happens to confront you about it, just play dumb and say you thought it was expunged. Being honest about a criminal background will guarantee that you NEVER find a job. *******ORIGINAL ANSWER********* [Always be truthful on an application for employment. It can depend on whether the question asks if you were ever CHARGED with a felony or.... if you were ever CONVICTED of a felony. If you wre never convicted you can answer the qeustion truthfully by saying, no. Keep in mind, that unless your record was expunged these entries WILL show up on your background check.]
There is a problem with your terms, To be a felon, you have been convicted of a crime that is a felony. If you were not convicted, you are not a felon.
If you have ever been convicted and served time, you cannot own a firearm. Double check, I could be wrong. Google your question. I am a felon and will go to federal prison if I have a firearm.
Yes, a person who has been charged with a felony but not convicted of the crime can be the executor of an estate depending where that person is in the legal process. A person who has been charged with a felony is considered innocent until proven guilty.
