I want to apply to Los Angeles Police to become a Police Officer. I have a history of 3 arrests but all charges have been dismissed therefore I do not have a criminal record.
They do sound bad but since I am under an alias here I can attest that all I am saying is 100% truthful and that I will tell the recruiter if I can even get that far exactly what happened.
First arrest which I was charged for Sexual Assault. The girl lied in court along with her witness and the case was dismissed. On top of that she had two additional restraining orders on other guys. I was hurt even though innocent for a long time. This happened 17 years ago.
Second arrest I was charged with a DUI but the charges were dropped under Article 894 in Louisiana. I was arrested outside of the vehicle and they made the assumption that I was in the car. I was in the car but I was looking for my girlfriend who ran out into a very dangerous area alone . This happened 14 years ago.
I had one traffic citation for following too closely which I paid so I am guilty of that. This happened 6 years ago.
Third arrest although I was not charged and although I was told by legal aid that I can press charges for assault against security officer. I was arrested for trespassing when a huge fight broke out. I was in the area and they told me to leave so I did but when I was on the side walk down the street they followed me two security guys and I was upset so I turned to tell them I was on public property now and they cannot touch me. That was my mistake because they did touch me. This happened 4 years ago.
This all sounds bad on paper and I already can hear the clicks of the keyboard saying "look for employment elsewhere"
I am looking for hope and to see if anyone thinks I have a shot.
With my arrests I am making the assumption that if I am innocent.
