Am I able to get CNA with Juvenile misdemeanor sex offense?
- 0Sep 8, '12 by ccarlso9I am wondering if I am able to get a CNA license with a misdemeanor juvenile sex offense charge (from when I was 12). I was compliant with everything from courts to probation to treatment, etc. and I am wondering whether or not I will eb able to get my CNA in Virginia.
I am 18 now.

You can ask them--do it by an anonymous e-mail if you prefer--and see what they say. However, keep in mind that most BONs will tell you that they won't give a definite answer until you actually apply, because they review applicants with a criminal history on a case-by-case basis. They will probably let you know what documentation you will need to submit when you apply.

Best of luck.
