"Tell me about your work experience?"
"Hey, uh, how far back do y'all go for felonies?"
"We search your entire criminal history but obviously the same crime commited yesterday weighs more heavily than one committed 20 years ago with nothing since. You actually marked that you don't have any criminal history, however. Is that wrong?"
Long story short he had been arrested A LOT. Like three times for public intoxication in the last MONTH. Felony drug charges in the last year. Theft $50,000+ in the past two years. Burglary, theft, theft, theft, drugs.
He was applying to install security systems. You have to have a certain level of credibility, much less to meet licensing requirements.
