Flying with vandalism misdemeanor/ no probation!


(Jade Faris) #1

Hey all,
I was wondering how likely to get hired with a vandalism misdemeanor on my record! I didn’t have to do probation! Was able to expunge it right away!
Just a bad break up! Moving out i scratched his car trying to put the bed frame into his trunk! He called the police and insisted to press charges! Even the police thought it was insane but they had to arrest me since he wanted me to be arrested! It was a tiny scratch! As it truly was an accident! The police estimated it to be less than $400 but he filed for 4k. It was obvious to the court that he is trying to use me for money! I had to may $280. Lowest charge of misdemeanor. Will i ever be able to get a job flying if i go ahead and get my license?

Jade,

Short answer if that’s truly all you have on your record you’ll be fine but make sure you keep it that way.
