As far as the "weird moment", I was somewhat confused, because since they have done online renewals, the last 4 years or so, when I check yes, it always defaults and allows you to write your explaination. It did not do that, I knew the board is/was aware of my history, and ALL documentation was provided before I ever was licensed.
And, as far as the expungement goes, once it is expunged, I do not have to admit to it at all, it is completely wiped clean, and could challenge the board. But, I think that's pointless. If they didn't put any action against my license to start with, why would they when the data is the same.
Point is, I didn't mean to actually lie. I was afraid to check yes, and marked no, basically meaning no new convictions.
Oh well. 2 weeks and still no word from BON
