Criminal charges question

So I did my aptitude test and qualified for the boatswain.

I have a criminal record but one of them was a federal one. I got caught with some weed and got a fine in 2007. It's been paid and I'm done probation.

Is this federal criminal conviction gonna mess up my chances of getting in?

Thank you

Shouldn't be that big a deal, so long as you declared your Criminal Conviction at the time of your online application.

But I'd recommend that you apply for a "Record Suspension" as soon as possible.  You don't have to hire a Lawyer or anything like that, just fill out the forms, submit the required documentation and pay the fee.

Good luck.

I told them I had a criminal record but I forgot about this one. I had 2 other ones (all paid for and no legal holdbacks) from my local court but forgot about this one. Hope I didn't dig my own grave.

When you next visit your CFRC for either the CFAT or Interview, you can always mention this at that time.

Good luck!
