Hello all, 

I just received a letter from bnvpt stating that I failed to disclose a dumpiNg PC 374.3. This was a ticket for urinating in public in 2014. I had completely forgotten about this ticket.  I pleaded guilty to illegal dumping as recommend by the court. I paid $1000 fine. Theyre asking for certified copies of incident. Any input anyone?

Get the certified copies and beg for mercy. Be 100% honest and say you forgot about the incident. They probably only want to see that all fines are paid and that the case is closed. If your record i otherwise clean you should be fine.

Recently I had to do a Livescan for a government position and I had forgotten the dates/reasons that my drivers license was suspended 15 years ago and I thought that was bad. 

You forgot about urinating in public and paying $1000 only 5 years ago. This doesn't look good. 

I would never recommend for you to state "you forgot" - except that you failed to disclose so what other possible excuse is there? 

Definitely submit copies of the case/outcome with your appeal letter as well as yes, beg for mercy. Maybe something along the lines of thinking of crime being dishonest or violent - which you have never been in any trouble for, so it slipped your mind...? 

I do have a friend from nursing school who got a ticket for the same thing. He handled his circumstances appropriately by being forthcoming on his application as well as submitting the application with letters of recommendation. There was only a very slight delay in his licensure. 

I was in trouble for DUI 8 years prior to applying for my RN License in CA which was initially denied. It took 18 months of fighting (on my own, no legal help) to finally get my license. The BRN doesn't want to ruin your life over one mistake, it's pattern behavior (meaning more than one offense of the same nature) that they are looking for. 

Best of luck to you. Be patient, humble, and most of all remorseful.
