I pled No Contest to my 1st Offense DUI in 2008. I successfully completed all the terms of my probation and paid all fines. It was my first arrest and I have not had so much as a speeding ticket since.
I am a college student in my Senior year and are starting to fill out various job applications. Some of them ask 'Have you ever been convicted of, accused of, or pled No Contest to any midsemeanor crime'?
Am I required by law to answer truthfully and tell of my conviction? Because pled No Contest, does that COUNT as a conviction? I realize that most employers do perform a background check anyway, but I feel like speaking of my conviction right away will prevent me from ever getting my foot in the door.
