Well I took that 30 question test on the FDACS website that will tell you if you qualify, and it seems that due to a withhold of adjudication on a B.S. felony charge back in 97, this may be causing my issue. The thing is, it is WELL OVER 3 years and wouldn't the FDLE have the disposition from the court? Outside of that, there should be nothing holding me back. The ONLY actual conviction I have is a Misdemeanor from 94 for getting into a fight at a club called the EDGE in Ft. Lauderdale - $75 to the magistrate and I was on my way. Then in 97 with the Felonies, but they were all withheld adjudication; I served my Probat and even received early term so from 97 till now NOTHING! I have some other arrests, but no convictions. Hell... I even worked for the Department of Defense with the same background and was given a mid-level security clearance. ehhh... this is B.S.!!!
