Customer Question
If you were convicted...

If you were convicted of a felony that was reduced below a felony after three years of probation, have you ever been convicted of a felony for legal purposes?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

Minnesota I don't know the exact name of the crime that was committed but it was prostitution with a person that was 16 or 17 years old.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am asking for the purpose of potentially acquiring a liquor store. One of the restrictions seems to be convicted of a felony in the last five years.

Okay.
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 11 months ago

It depends on how the question is worded, because for three years, until the case was reduced after your successful completion of probation, this offense showed as a felony on your record. So if the question on the application asks you "Were you ever convicted of a felony," the answer has to be yes. Make a note somewhere that it was reduced to a misdemeanor.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
