I just got my license as a LVN and I've applied every where had a few really good interviews until the issue about my criminal background came up. I shoplifted from the mall in 2008 I was 18 young and stupid! They are both Class B theft misdemeanors, I cannot get them expunged or a non-disclosure from my record because I chose to serve jail time instead of probation (bad decision!) Now I'm in a bind anyone else have something similar as me and has gotten a job? How'd you do it? My last resort is asking for pardon for my crime by filling out a pardon application but it's such a long process grrrrr, HELP!
