What does "Have you ever been convicted of a felony or

What does "Have you ever been convicted of a felony or subjected to deferred adjudication on a felony charge?" mean? I was arrested on a possession of identifying information charge in 2004. I accepted deferred adjudication and completed without any incident. The word "subjected" makes me think that the question could mean something more than did I just accept deferred. I was never convicted, revoked, nothing. Completed probation perfectly - 14 years ago. I am afraid this will hinder a potential job I am trying to get. I recieved the offer letter, now they are asking this. What should I answer?

I pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge in

I pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge in 2006, served 18 days with an ankle monitor and had 3 years informal probation with another stipulation that I can't own a firearm for 10 years. I served my probation without violation and will complete my 10 year gun ban on Oct. 27th of this year without any violation of probation or gun ban. How long do I need to wait to purchase a firearm?JA: Our average wait time is under 20 minutes. Sometimes it takes just a minute. More complicated questions that need more research might take an hour or two. I'd be happy to chat with you while you wait. The stories I've heard working here...Customer: My conviction was in Redding,CA.. I live in Atlanta, GA. now.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: The charge was originally a felony assault with the intent to cause serious bodily injury. I was falsely accused so I hired a private investigator and hired the guy who trains the DOJ to administer polygraphs and passed that with no problem. My PI brought forward tons of evidence showing I couldn't have been the perpetrator, but the DA wouldn't dismiss the charges and I didn't have the money to keep paying a lawyer and PI during a trial. The DA finally lowered the charge to a misdemeanor assault likely to cause bodily injury based in their words as "lack of evidence".JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Only a brief conversation with a legal assistant on the phone.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Only that I've never before or since been in any kind of trouble with the law.

I had a external hard drive connected to my WIFI router at

I had a external hard drive connected to my WIFI router at home to be able to transfer some files onto my laptop. During the time I had it connected, my roommate saw the drive on the network and proceeded to copy a large amount files. He copied personal and confidential information and is using the knowledge of that information to extort money from me.He states it was legal to copy it because I gave him the WIFI password ***** ago, therefore I am somehow giving him permission to access anything on the network. My analogy, I see it as money laying out in my own bedroom. He had to open the door (the hard drive) walk in, look around and then take the money. Sure, the room wasn't locked, but that's not giving him permission to scope around my room and take anything he sees. What are my legal options here?
