  • Background packet questions

    I am filling out my background packet and came across a few questions that I don't know how to answer. The first: "Have you ever committed a felony for which you were never arrested or convicted?" To be honest, I am unclear on what constitutes a felony in Ohio. In my past I have driven under the influence, but have never been pulled over or convicted. Do I need to circle yes for this question? The second question: "Have you ever engaged in any criminal sexual act?" Again, I am unclear as to what exactly this is. If these have been addressed before, I am sorry. This is my first background. Thanks in advance.

    That sounds pretty self explanatory to me. Generally, drunk driving is a misdemeanor save aggravating circumstances. Your wavering on the sex question is a cause for concern.

      Unless you've got multiple past convictions, OVI is a misdemeanor. As for the sex question...what kinds of sexual acts have you done that might be criminal?

        The only thing I was thinking was that I was 18 and she was 16.

          Sorry for the cause for concern, I guess it was the way in which I worded the post. I really am not a sexual criminal, lol. I just didn't want to slip up on the packet.

            Background Packet

            DUI, OWI, by whatever title, is a misdemeanor in all fifty states, unless you were involved in an accident in which there was death, or in some states, serious injury. The key in completing your Background Package is honesty. In all liklihood, you'll be given a Polygraph Exam at some point in the process. You'll almost certainly be asked these questions again.

              When I had turned my packet in and filled out a 15 page preliminary polygraphy questionare, the question of "have you had sex with someone under 18" came up. For me, I haven't so it wasn't a problem, but you'd have to answer YES and explain the circumstances. It's considered stat. rape if I'm correct

                We didn't have the question about sex with a minor in our packet. The reason I brought it up in the post is because I wasn't 100% sure about the consent age for Ohio. I have been told by several people today that it is 16.

                  I have read most of your other posts and it seems you have some growing up to do. You’re not ready to become a police officer.

                    The age of consent in Ohio is 16. There's no violation of law there.
