Have you ever been found guilty, or entered a plea of nolo contendere (no contest) to any crime other than a minor traffic violation? (DUI is not considered a minor traffic violation and must be listed.) An answer is required regardless of whether adjudication was withheld or the charges were dismissed by the court, and regardless of whether or not those records have been sealed or expunged. If you select the YES box, you must give complete information for each charge below:
For each arrest, please indicate: City where arrested, State, Date arrested, Charges, and Disposition.
By submitting this form, I am consenting to having my name searched on the sexual predator/offender database. My answers to these questions and the database search may disqualify me from volunteering. I affirm that the answers submitted here are true.
