Hi! I believe I can be of help with this issue.
I can imagine how worrisome this situation must be for you. I assume you are talking about Texas as LCDC is an acronym I know from that state and I don't know of others using it. Let me give you the link to the relevant statutes in the Texas state statutes:
You want to scroll down to Subchapter B: INELIGIBILITY FOR LICENSE
You'll see that their cut off is 5 years. For sexually violent crimes, that might not apply. However, that usually is referring to a felony conviction--see paragraph (b).
So, it's highly doubtful that your conviction was classified as a violent crime if it was classified as a misdemeanor. At which point you would be beyond the 5 year cutoff for having to list the conviction in your license application.
If you are still in doubt, though, here is the phone number for the Professional Licensing and Certification Unit in Austin:(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
Okay, I wish you the very best!
