who first being duly sworn, deposes and says that affiant hereby attests that affiant has conducted a complete background investigation on the above officer. Affiant’s background investigation concluded that this officer is of "Good Character" and does not have any disqualifications which would render the officer uncertifiable under the South Carolina Training Act, Section 23-23-60 and I hereby make application for certification. Affiant’s background investigation concluded that the applicant for certification:
1) Has not been convicted of any criminal offense that is a felony, or any criminal offense that carries a sentence of one year or more, or of any criminal offense that involves moral turpitude. Forfeiture of bond, a guilty plea, or a plea of nolo contendere is considered the equivalent of a conviction.
