    Just for clarification.....on the Florida law passed in 2009.

    Chapter 409, F.S. (relating to social and economic assistance), Chapter 817, F.S. (relating to fraudulent practices), Chapter 893, F.S. (relating to drug abuse
    prevention and control) and r 21 U.S.C. ss. 801-970 (relating to controlled substances) or 42
    U.S.C. ss. 1395-1396 (relating to public health, welfare, Medicare and Medicaid issues)

    The above felonies are very specific felonies that most people whom have committed crimes do not fall under (other than perhaps controlled substance abuse or intent to distribute such). Read the chapters and subsections carefully. For example, things like common theft do not fall under fraudulent practices.

    I hope this clarification can alleviate some of the readers' concerns.

    Florida BON can and will go back 10 years and they will find it.. Your best bet is to call someone at the BON and ask before you put in all the hard work.
