in trouble before in Austin, Texas

91 months ago

Once you finish your deferred adjudication, then the only record of it should be the arrest (if there was an arrest). You can often get the arrest expunged, but you usually have to pay a lawyer to do it.

In any case, don't let your record stop you from pursuing your career and your dreams. Even if it stops you from getting one job, it won't stop you from getting every one you apply for. Good luck

Id contact the rt board in the state(s) you want to practice in. Diffrent states have diffrent standards. Nothing would be worse than to spend 20k+ on school only to find out you cant get licensed.

Chris in Wylie, Texas said: Iv'e been looking intently into the rct/rt feild intensly. the director of the school i talked to said that with my felony it is possible but alot harder.
it is not drug related or a felon of moral turpitude. its defered adjudication so it shows as a chrge not conviction and by the time i finish school it will have been 7 years ago. She said that i would probably have to start with the agencies and prove myself to the hospital community. basically it who you know. Plus I already have a state license. im a licensed electrician. I was hoping to get som input from those already in the field that know the system. Basically i was intoxicated and misused a city owned backhoe to do some work on my land. Henced I was charged with theft 20k. Any input would be highly appreciated.

You should have no problems!

If you are a licensed electrician...why are you trying to enter another career field?
Electricians are at a premium across the country, so you would have no problems finding work throughout the US.
Unless you're "tired" of the work...not sure why you'd change careers...

Cant you go to court and file a motion to have your rights reinstated? its been seven years? I think as long as youve kept your nose clean and changed your ways you can ask to have your rights reinstated and have your felony conviction pretty much erased from your records...I might be wrong but check into it....

Theft is a crime of Moral Turpitude... it is the same as Larceny Grand or Petty and is classified as such. There is no law however stating you can not get ANY job with a felony conviction - truth is you CAN and if they do not hire you because of the Felony - you can sue them.

Okay, I know that me and another cna at work had applied for the same rt program and the counselor told her that because she has a misdemeanor from (get this) twelve years ago, it may hinder her in receiving a license to provide respiratory care. Now she has her cna already. Each state is different as to whether they will or will not accept you. You may still sit for the board and take the test and not be able to be licensed. Call the board in your state and give the facts of the felony. They can tell you whether you are wasting your time or if its not really a problem. Oh, and someone had said you can sue if a hospital will not hire you because of a crime, no you can't. If the hospital feels that you have deceived or frauded the community, you can be turned down because of that. There are some strict rules and regulations for healthcare workers. Check into your state and call the clinical sites. Get a copy of your criminal record. Take it in and let them review it before you start the program.

The nature and level of the crime is what is important to the Board. Plus, if you were either on probation or served county jail time only - you can call the clerk of the courts in that state to see if your crime was "adjudicated guilty" or "adjudication withheld". If the adjudication was withheld then you can contact the courts and have your record sealed. If the adjudication was NOT withheld then you can hire an Attorney and have them request the adjudication be turned so you can have your record sealed. Florida seals it for 10 years then expunges it after that time. In NC if you completed your time, paid your fines and restitution - then you rights are automatically reinstated - even if the felony was from another state. It is estimated that more than 40% or more of the American population have felony records.

Here's the skinny folks......... President Cliton (Bill) signed into FEDERAL LAW (catch 22) That no funding shall be dispursed to any facility that knowingly hires anyone convicted of a felony typically dealing with drugs, theft, moral turpitued, fraud, violence or sexual crimes. (FYI- in some states arrearage of child support would qualify you as well)This was done to protect the public trust as a lot of ID theft, assaults and sex abuse was happening in nursing homes etc. (see Kill Bill 1). As a result if youhave any of the above regardless of how long doesn't matter you R Screwed! I am trying to activate my license in FL (1988) a posession charge in which I was 1 of 4 occupants to which all were charged as no one came fwd to claim drugs. Mind you I was a CRTT for 10 yrs. with monitoring from a third party as a condition of licesure. It's possible to get a license but the biggest hurdle is the employer who will treat you like a lepur.
Most states do a background for licensure through FBI/NCIC. It will take a federal law to reverse this so I suggest you call you congressman. Good luck on that though. The numbers are high enough for some action as it effects millions but no one has organized a PAC yet to get the ears of congress. There is a bill that has been on the floor 3 time now that would give you a pass on a one time felony but it keeps getting shot down. Rangall (D-NY) is heading it. the only state you have a shot NOW is IL. The have a waiver that can get you through.

Working in healthcare is a privilage. Think twice about who you associate with and what you do, it could cost you your job. There is a reason why this bill keeps getting shot down, there is no such thing as an "accidental" felony.

You're speaking on something you know nothing about. Your city was the Mecca of Crack Cocaine in the 80's. In FL if you are within 10 ft of a control substance you can be arrested for and probably convicted for something you had no knowledge of. I don't know about you but I don't usually request a background check on everyone I meet as it would be unresonable to do so. In my case I was an associate of the friend of the the vehicle in which I was a passenger. i.e. I had no knowledge of the individual and to be honest not sure if to this day that he was any more guilty than I. You see the sheriff who searched the vehicle (4x mind you) is in prison for planting evidence, RICO act and money laundering. You must be new to Florida. There is an old saying throughout the country: Come to Florida for vacation end up in litigation. Judge places you on probation. Miss a date or payment and now you're in viloation. Next thing you know you get incarceration.
The issue isn't about "accidental Felonies" my friend. People make mistakes or have bad luck. I know people that have DUI from a couple of beers but I wouldn't call them public enemy #1. FYI if working in healthcare is a privilage then why does FL. have over 50,000 so called impaired practitioners in its PRN program? Oh that's right they are priveledged.

<Edited by Host: Personal attack removed> My husband has a sexual abuse 2nd on his record and we cannot get it off! The girl that accused him of touching her through her shirt has now even said that he never did it, but she wrote a friend a note to make the friend think that she was cool becasue a 22 year old guy gave her attention in that way and her mom found the note. We live in Ass backwards Alabama that won't listen to the case because our first atty. filed a rule 32 and made a mistake. Well, you can only file a rule 32 one time and so we don't have a chance even with the signed affidavit from the girl. (She was 15 at the time) This happened 13 years ago, and he has never been in any trouble since. It is rediculous and some people just get screwed. Stop pointing fingers at everyone at one time. You have to look at each individual. When he got convicted, the judge said, "well, I think you did it." and gave him a $250 fine and sent him on his way. Now look what it has done to him and there was no evidance to even prove him guilty. I am livid. By the way,I am a high school teacher and have 4 kids. I have never been so disappointed in our judicial system than I am with this situation.

The point that you are missing TED, is that you don't know. Statistically speaking chances are you work with someone of "questionable Character" maybe even you. If you are that good a judge of character then you are missing your calling my friend.

As far as the accidental felonies go; 2009-03-23 there are over 14M people unemployed. Many are responsible for paying child support, fines,taxes,mortgages,etc. In many states, Florida included, failure to pay CS can be a felonious offense. Did they intentionally lose their employment since the company eliminated their positions? I'm sure your rebuttal is they need to get another job but in this economy that is easier said than done. I know McDonald's is always hiring but you can't go from $50K a year to minimum wage over night and survive. I agree their are no accidental felonies but the intent can be from the opposing side as well regardless of actuality.

For those asking about licensing in California, you should try the State Board first. www.rcb.ca.gov/

I'm not an RT, but do work in HR and have friends in RT.

Quick answer to some of the questions, for a DUI, it's considered a substance abuse problem. Drinking and driving, smoking crack cocaine, it falls into the same category. Clean up your act, prove you're clean, don't complain about the random drug tests (that you have to pay for) and it won't be such a big deal, unless you have multiple offenses.

If you are on probation for anything, don't expect to get hired or even licensed until the probation is up. Like I said previously, you need to prove you're 'clean'.

As for hiring a lawyer to expunge a record, it's a waste of time. The CA state board specifically requests all information regarding anything you've ever been charged with, convicted of, had expunged, etc...
Expunging a record does not mean it is destroyed, it just means it's not available for public viewing. You'll be submitting your driving record, police record, court records, and school transcripts. If you attempt to hide anything, the state board can ban you for life.

If you've committed any form of violence against another person (assault, terrorist threats, rape, etc..) you're out, doesn't matter when you did it or how you regret it now, you won't get into a hospital.

If you've displayed a repeating pattern of committing a crime, such as multiple theft, DUI, etc... you'll be lucky to get into a hospital. The state board reviews each applicant with a criminal history individually though, so it wouldn't hurt to call them.

If you behind on payments for anything you owe on, child support, credit cards, car, etc.. you should get that taken care of as well. HR departments don't like dealing with debt collectors anymore than you do.

In California, it's a tight market for RTs. Even experienced RTs with clean records sometimes settle for Per Diem positions.

You will not be aloud to complete your clinicals. Most schools do a CORI, a criminal offender research inquiry, I think thats what it stands for, anyone know for sure, let me know. If you have a felony, usually the school would tell you you cant take the course. Any nursing home, long term care, rehab, or assisted living place will absoulutely not hire someone with a felony. Might need to look elsewhere.

Well he decided to have some friends over and have a party with some drugs involved and the police came and they was arrested. When I got back they charged and convicted me with the maintaining a common nusiance because I gave him a key and the ok to go in my house to take care of my dog. they had to charge and convict me of that. I even let them do a hair test on me and of course it came back fine. Will I be able to get a rt license to work in Georgia. please somebody give me some info thanks.

That's not necessarily true. Most states because of the act passed by Clinton have instituted a pier revue and exemption clause. In Fl if the offense is 2 years old or more you can get an exemption. SC is the best state if you have a felony. After a period of time they will wipe the slate clean from any state.

Ted would probably say NO but you issue will be will the school let you through the program and can you do clinicals because of the felony? I think you need to get the final disposition reduced to a lesser charge not a felony. This can be done through an atty and a hearing with the sitting judge.

I work with a person who has a felony. It is possible depending upon the state your wanting to work in. However, it took much longer for him to get a license approved and he had to provide court documents and a bunch of other information. I guess I would contact the state licensing board of where you want to work and see if they will issue a license to someone with a felony.

How To Clear Your Criminal Record
I have all of the necessary steps to clear your record-anywhere. Completly detailed, you can do all the work yourself, without an attorney.

-Find out whats on your rap sheet
-What to do if the FBI report is wrong
-Apply for clemency
-Proven methods to getting a pardon
-And what to do after your record has been cleared.

This is all perfectly legal and can be done by anyone, anywhere. All letters and forms are included and you can complete the job yourself-discreetly. simply, and cheaply.

Don't let a criminal record hold you back!!!

I am trying to put together all the information I can for felons because it is truly hard. I am a convicted felon myself. I decided to go back to school for IT and will be making 55-65k when I graduate next year. I suggest all of you looking for help check out www.apluscertified.blogspot.com it helped me find out what I wanted to go back to school for so far as my certifications.
