I recently was hired at by the U.S Government and now I have to fill out my hiring papers and I have to answer this.
your answers should include convictions resulting from a plea of nolo contendere (no contest), but omit (4) any conviction set aside under the Federal Youth Corrections Act or
similar state law.
During the last 10 years, have you been convicted, been imprisoned, been on probation, or been on parole?
to provide the date, explanation of the violation, place of occurrence, and the name and address of the police
department or court involved
Technically i wasn't convicted, or imprisoned for the offense but I did have to go 18 months probation. So how should I answer the question? I was just going to explain the situation and hope for the best. It was 8 years ago and the only thing on my record. Do you think this will disqualify me from employment?
