Would this be ok for the explanation that I'm gonna put on

Hi... would this be ok for the explanation that I'm gonna put on the application?On or about May 10, 1990, I was convicted for misdemeanor theft. Although this imperfection is part of my past, I have since dedicated myself to ensuring that it did not define my future. In 27 years since the conviction, I have worked as a bank teller, accountant, and airlines customer service and raised my children. I got my BS degree in accounting from GMU. If you have any concern regarding this part of my personal history, I will be happy to provide whatever additional information you may seek.

On Nov. 4th, 2016 my boyfriend hit the carport in the

On Nov. 4th, 2016 my boyfriend hit the carport in the condominium complex where I live. He was driving a Uhaul truck at the time and was in the process of delivering furniture to my residence.After hitting the carport he continued driving for about the length of 10 carports (so that he would be able to back the truck up to my carport, I was following him into my condo complex and needed to get my car into my carport before we carried furniture into my unit).He then stopped and got out of the truck. I drove into my complex 1-2 minutes after my boyfriend, by that time he was out of the truck. One of my neighbors at the scene of the incident appeared unusually upset and I said to him, "This was an ACCIDENT and that the Uhaul insurance would pay for the damage to be repaired." That is exactly what happened, the carport was repaired within a few weeks. My neighbor then said, "Well...I did not know if he was going to stop or not."While talking with my neighbor I saw his wife storming over to the residence of one of our condo board members. My boyfriend and I then unloaded the furniture into my unit, visited for about 15-20 minutes and then he left. About 20-30 minutes later a police officer was at my door.....My questions include the following:1. considering that the incident occurred on private property was it legally necessary for the police to be contacted?2. Is it illegal to provide false information to the police which results in a Class C misdemeanor? The person who is on our board that did not witness the incident called the police and reported to them that my guest had "left the scene of an accident." The neighbor I spoke with at the scene made the same claim to the police. I was stunned in that he did not leave the scene, he was there for about an hour after the incident. No police officers came to my condo complex until after Dr. Wallis (boyfriend) left.3. Considering the facts, how is it that he could be given that citation when in fact he stopped the truck, got out and was there for probably an hour. If the others mentioned above thought that there was a violation of the law, does it not seem odd that they did not contact the police immediately?4. Was it essentially left to the discretion of a police officer as to whether my boyfriend would be cited?

I was pulled over recently for speeding and I had a gram of marijuana on me. I was arrested. I have court coming up and was looking for some advice. I am a 25 year old white women. I am a full time student and have a full time job. The only other trouble I have had was when I was 20 (month before I was 21) I was arrested for underage drinking. I completed the program and moved on from that. I am trying to see what to expect when I go to court in April. I'm wondering if I will just have a fine and community service or something more severe.
