Customer Question
I need to know...

I need to know if a 16 year old felony will prevent me from an insurance license in the state of Georgia. This took place when I was 17 and in high school. First Offender Treatment was granted, and the charge does not show up on a background check; however, I must disclose it to the government.

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

Georgia. The charge is Theft by Taking. Involved a neighborhood kids taking a car in the neighborhood with keys left in it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

As far as what?

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

I believe that is the bulk of it.

Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Unfortunately, yes, you can be disqualified on those grounds. You can see the statute with regard to that here:

https://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2010/title-33/chapter-23/article-1/33-23-21/

Look at subsections (15) and (16)(A) and (B).

On the other hand, it doesn't say you'd be automatically disqualified, only that they MAY refuse to issue you a license. So after all of this time and given the facts of the old case, it may be worth your while to still apply.

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.
