  • Will a misdemeanor by theft keep me out of nursing school?

    I was arrested for shoplifting at a store for an item under $25. Two weeks later, I received acceptance into my nursing program. When they run my background check, will I be denied acceptance?

    Phillip’s Answer

    May not keep you out of nursing school however a conviction for theft, which is a crime of moral turpitude, may prevent you from obtaining a license from the nursing board. You definitely need to hire a lawyer to help guide you through this matter.

    Phillip’s Answer

    Your mother has been summoned to Court on the noted date on the citation. Should your mother not appear in Court on the noted date, most likely the Court will issue a warrant for your mother's failure to appear on the given date noted on the citation. This warrant will then be entered into a database which will disseminate that information to all law enforcement agencies. Then should your mother attempt to re-enter the USA, she will be detained until the hold which is issued pursuant to the bench warrant is lifted. Frankly, she would most likely be denied re-entry into the USA.

    You should speak with an attorney soon and definitely before the court date so as to get specific advice to this situation as it will not just go away because your mother left the country. Feel free to contact me as I practice in Alpharetta Municipal Court and Fulton County.
