I am a doctor applying for a new position. 15 years ago I pled guilty to the DUI.
There are 3 questions, 1 of which I must clearly answer yes. "Have you ever been convicted of an offense other than a minor traffic violation?"--they go on to say a DUI is not a minor traffic violation.
Then there are 2 more questions:
"Have you ever been found guilty of a criminal
offense?" Ok, if this is not the same question as the first, I'm thinking the difference is "have you been found guilty" implying, correct me if I'm wrong, the burden was on the prosecutor, but I confessed, so it would be "no."
Third question is, "Have you ever been imprisoned or jailed in a criminal proceeding?"
HMmmmmm, why not just ask if I'd been arrested? well, I was briefly in jail under suspicion of a DUI but there was no jail time after, and I read online that a "criminal proceding" starts when prosecuting attorney submits charges, which had not been done.
So "in a criminal proceding" makes this a no for me. Please let me know if I'm wrong on that count.
