    That phrase means "NO CONTEST."

    In other words you don't admit to committing the offense BUT you acknowledge that the state has enough evidence to convict you of the offense.

    No matter what the "adjudication" of the charge was-----you are going to be a convicted felon in the eyes of law enforcement administrators.

      As has been noted to you. In the eyes of any police agency to which you apply, you are a "convicted felon".

            There is no such thing as an expunged record when dealing with a LAW ENFORCEMENT Background investigation

            You WILL be asked to list any LE contacts, any ARRESTS and most likely any CONVICTIONS.
            (a nolo plea would have resulted in a conviction of some sort ----yes even if it was deferred.)


            A LE Background investigator WILL find the conviction AND the expunged record when running the Complete Criminal History check-------among other areas of the investigation

                Short answer- YES is is a disqualifying issue.

                Because of the felony, you DO NOT meet the minimum qualifications established in Florida Statutes 943.13

                not have been convicted of any felony or of a misdemeanor involving perjury or false statement. Any person who, after July 1, 1981, pleads guilty or nolo contendere to, or is found guilty of a felony, or of a misdemeanor involving perjury or a false statement, shall not be eligible for employment or appointment as an officer, not-withstanding suspension of sentence or withholding of adjudication
                See: http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/...n-officer.aspx and scroll down to paragraph 1.

                Assuming this is Florida- see: http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/...of-Eligib.aspx

                and

                http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/content/...questions.aspx

                Even if you were able to get the conviction expunged, it does not erase it nor your disqualification under FSS.

                  A felony conviction is a statutory dq, as you can no longer touch a gun. An expungment can not change this, however a certificate of relief from civil disabilities possibly could remove the automatic statutory dq. However, the agency

                    Could still hold the arrest against you- it would just remove the automatic disqualification and allow them to use their judgement. You would likely meed to contact a criminal or civil rights attorney, and meet your states requirements- and convince a judge to issue you that certificate.

                    Generaly, sexual, violent and repeat offenders will not be issued relief. Each state has their own rules.

                      No bueno for California. Sorry guy.

                      Any person convicted of a felony (or of a crime in another jurisdiction that would be a felony in
                      California) is prohibited from employment as a California peace officer [Government Code
                      §1029(a)]. This prohibition holds even if the conviction was sealed, expunged, or set aside. It
                      may also apply to any convictions that were subsequently reduced to a misdemeanor occurring
                      on or after January 1, 2004.

                          You're a convicted felon, as a result of your plea. My colleague has done an excellent job in describing the implications of your plea to you. You're an automatic, lifetime DQ in Alabama.
