For job application when they ask have you been convicted of a felony sometimes they say within seven years
Without knowing any facts, the seven year line typically starts running after the date of conviction or, if applicable, from the date of successful completion.
Speak with a lawyer for more specific advice.
Without knowing any other details, if a possible employer is asking you if you have been convicted of a felony within the past seven years, they are referring to the date of the disposition...meaning, the day that you were found guilty or not guilty or the day of the plea if a plea agreement was entered into. If you were charged in 2008 and the case was dragged out until 2009 where you plead guilty and the sentencing was in 2010...the conviction actually took place on the 2009 date when you plead guilty.
The Felony is 7 years old this year. Apply and show up. Be Good. Do Good. Let them see the kind person in you.
