Ok , I have an important question, over 5 years ago I got a 3rd degree assault charge, which was stupid for literally leeaving a scratch on a girl who came at me first. Anyway I am just finishing my Bachelors in criminal justice and am having a hard time getting accepted into the field. I don't want to be an officer, I am leaning more towards probation. Is having this charge on my record going to screw me out of a career in CJ?

I have asked an everytime they say it isn't a problem, then I get through the poly and they tell me that my background is the problem. I have nothing on my record other then that. Perfect driving record, great credit. I am starting to worry that I have spent all this time and money on a career I won't be allowed into for something so silly.

Very funny there Sarge, considering I have never been on probation in my life . A simple answer would be appreciated.

What position were you seeking (or applied for) when you took the poly?


You could always contact your local probation office and speak with someone there.

I am a probation officer. We are POST certified officers in my state with full police powers. It would be a problem here.

You cannot be POST certified in Colorado with a 3rd degree assault on your record. Not sure about other States.

It was dropped to disturbing the peace, it wasn't DV, I only paid a fine and no classes or anything. It was a scratch from me pointing at a girl to tell her to hush and stratched her hand. I'm in Colorado and it only states if you have any DV or felonies. This was 7 years ago.

Background investigation not only includes the case disposition in Court, but also the original charge with the arresting Agency. Therein probably lies the problem with your background.
