Being "charged" question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

First post here. :)

On the question where it asks if you've ever been "charged" with a crime or offense, how are you guys answering that?

Specifically, if you only have non-DUI traffic citations.

I know the answer to the "arrest" question (Q.23) is "yes." However, does that automatically infer a "yes" answer to question 24 as well?

Thanks

GoingBlue,

If you have a criminal charge in your history you answer Yes. If you don't have it the answer is No. If you ever been cited (for anything including traffic violations) you say Yes. When it comes to the interview make sure you have a proof that all your traffic related tickets (not parking tickets) are paid.

Thanks for your response, olna83.

Just so i'm clear on what you're saying:

I have no criminal charge on my CORI.

However, i have traffic citations - So, you're saying the answer to whether or not i've been charged with a crime or offense is "Yes," based on the traffic citations.

Therefore:

Part 11

Q.23 (ever arrested) - Yes

Q.24 (ever charged) - Yes

Right?

Don't really know... Olna's response sounds very reasonable.

I think the important thing is that you list your citations in the section that asks about citations. Whether you answer the "being changed" question with a yes or no, you can just double check with your interviewer during the interview.
