Thank you for your patience as I reviewed the information.
Fortunately NY reviews applicants on a case by case basis; their goal is to determine if the applicant is of sound moral character. Ideally a person would have a completely clean background but that is not always the case, so it is not uncommon for a person to have some type of criminal record.
They will evaluate the candidate's application and determine, if there is indication of conviction, if it is relevant, and will typically look at 2 main things - ie the severity of the conviction, and the duration-how long ago the conviction occurred. If it was 2 decades ago and there have been no other incidents, the person is generally deemed to have paid their debt to society and so long as they meet all other requirements then there is no restriction to being licensed.
