(Just to be clear... Is there something I can do going forward I.e. pardon or anything that can get me relieved from something that happened so long ago.)
I recently received a conditional offer letter from a big fortune 50 company. I am a little anxious over awaiting the results from my background check (LEXUS/Nexus).
Over 5 years ago I got a ticket for soliciting prostitution. Although I believe this may have been an entrapment case I was found guilty and had to pay a fine. Brief details: Just got back from deployment with the Navy, bought a new Truck. While sitting at the traffic light in broad daylight on a main street, an undercover officer flagged me down. She was attractive and while talking she mentioned that she needed help and would do whatever for money, being young I took her up on the offer and proceeded to follow her in my car. Never getting out the car, things did not seem right. I immediately wanted to drive away and a swarm of officers came out from all directions and surrounded my car. I never gave her any money, never got out of my vehicle and learned a huge lesson. This charge was something I received while in the Navy and was very petty of me and of course I deeply regret what I done.
Since then I have gotten elected President of my University's student government, got hired in a corporate position a year before graduating college, and furthermore, graduated with honors with two degrees recently from college. I was in high demand, while receiving the job I have now, but want to further my career and want to know will this have an everlasting affect on my life going forward and is there something I can do. i.e pardon or some sort... something to ease the burden of this past.
I want to know will this affect me forever while making career decisions?
