sealed, expunged, eradicated, or any misdemeanor conviction for which probation has been successfully

completed or otherwise discharged and the case has been judicially dismissed pursuant to

Penal Code Section 1203.4.


"Crime" means felonies and misdemeanors but does not include marijuana convictions that are more than two years old.

Have you ever been arrested for any offense involving controlled substances?



Question 5: Sex Offender

Have you ever been arrested for a sex offense for which registration as a sex offender would be required upon conviction?
