Have you been convicted yet? If not, then you don't have to say yes if the question asks if you have been convicted.

They are going to run a background check anyway, I would suspect.


Find out from your attorney or the Clerk's office whether you have a conviction or not. Then answer honestly so that it does not come back to haunt you.
