    Can I get a Criminal Justice job with a Georgia First Offender Plea on my record????

    I have a degree in Criminal Justice and want to pursue a career in the field. Unfortunately I have a record. In 2008 I was placed under the Georgia First Offender Treatment with 3 years probation, the offense was Theft by taking. I completed my probation with no violations and in result I have no conviction due to the first offender plea in the state of Georgia. Here is the question What jobs if any would i be able to apply to with this on my record?

    Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice.

    You stole something.....its a big deal because as a LEO, you tend to have an opportunity to be around lost of things of value (jewelry, cash, drugs, electronics, etc...) and even in folks homes or businesses when nobody else is there. An agency is likely to look at you as a liability.
    -In God we trust. All others, put your hands on the car and don't move.
