Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your question. If you were convicted of the stated crime, it is considered a felony in NYS since it is a 4th degree crime and "indictable" in NJ. Under the laws of NYS for security guard licensing the applicant (carrier of a license) cannot have been convicted of a "serious crime." A felony is a serious crime, therefore, that could lead to the loss of your SG license. However, there is a process where someone can ask for relief from the disability (the serious crime). If they have been convicted of one felony and it is a first time conviction, the process is called "Certificate of Relief from Disabilities" (see link below).

I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 25th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies, or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit (paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither.
Please keep in mind that I cannot control the law or your circumstances, and am ethically bound to provide you with accurate information based on the facts you give me even if the news is not good. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating,please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator.Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
