My question involves criminal records for the state of: Minnesota
Hi, I would like to know if I can become a probation officer with a 5th degree domestic assault charge in the sate of Minnesota. I was arrested for pushing & shoving a women. This incident happened at the age of 20, I am now 23. I am off probation and this is all in my past now . From what I understand as long as I'm not currently on any supervised probation myself, I technically stand a chance at becoming a PO. So what I would like to know is 1. Can I become a PO still , and 2. So say my charges don't disqualify me... But When applying I know my record won't be overlooked but is it going to screw me over and get my Application tossed, will they even give me a fair chance? Or is this misdemeanor going to be a serious problem for finding a job. Currently I am making up for my record with my grades In college . All A's .. I will graduate school with a exceptionally well GPA if that helps. I really hope this won't affect me greatly because if you guys say it will right here right now on this forum I might have no choice but to switch careers.
