I recently applied for a pharmacy tech license with the state of Alabama. I have been convicted of a misdemeanor and disclosed that. I was then sent a letter to provide arrest record, court disposition, and written explanation. I voluntarily went in I was never booked or fingerprinted. I went to court made an arrangement to pay off the checks & restitution and take a bad check class. All of which I completed. This was all in 2006. I sent the board a copy of the original letter from the DA, a case action summary, certificate of completion for the class, and a final receipt with a 0 balance. Thanks for the feedback.
No one here can give you a definitive answer regarding whether your license will be granted. However, based on the information provided, I don't see your license being denied because of this incident.
The issuance of a pharmacy license as pharmacist or pharmacy tech rests in the sound discretion of the Alabama Board of Pharmacy (ABOP). The main concern of the Board is whether or not you will commit illegal acts to take unauthorized controlled substances, or divert controlled substances, in violation of Title 20 of the Alabama Code. These acts could include use of fraudulent scripts, "shorting" the intended recipient, or outright theft of controlled substances. The primary concern of the Board is the security and careful control over all controlled substance that are dispensed through an authorized pharmacy.
