I was charged for petit larceny at my prior university. I will be applying for professional licensure; physician. The questions on the application require that I report only convictions but obviously they will find out about the ACD being a government agency. I am thinking to include the certificate of disposition with an explanation. The PROBLEM:
1.) In the explanation do I admit to guilt: (Even though an ACD is NOT an admission of guilt OR innocence) Making me look like I am owning up to the problem but potentially as someone lacking moral turpitude. OR
2.) Explain it as a misunderstanding: Potentially making me look like I am not owning up to it.
I WILL seek legal advice but in the mean time I would appreciate some peace of mind. Thank you for your help.
