Note: LTC & FID Application Question #10 reads as follows: “Have you ever appeared in any criminal court as a defendant for any criminal offense or criminal traffic offense (excluding non-criminal traffic offenses)?" 

 

The key word is "appeared"rather than "arrested." Having been charged and convicted of a crime does not necessarily prohibit you from getting an FID or LTC. Not answering truthfully does. 

 

Understand that "ever appeared" includes all adult and juvenile appearances. It does not matter if you were found not guilty, or if the charges were dismissed, or if you received a continuance without a finding, or your record was sealed--you still have to answer "yes" to the question if you ever appeared in any criminal court. If you do not answer truthfully, we will find out, no matter how long ago.

 

If you have a sealed record, you also have to indicate this; we are notified of disqualifiers even if they are from a sealed record.

 

We will not accept "I forgot," "They told me it would not show up," or "It never showed up before." Remember: you are signing this application under penalties of perjury; you will be denied a license for any untruthful answer and you may face the possibility of prosecution.

 

Information about how to obtain your criminal offender record information (CORI) is available from the Executive office of Public Safety & Security: http://www.mass.gov/eopss/crime-prev-personal-sfty/bkgd-check/cori/
