    Default Livingston County - Reference Question

    Would there be any issue if my character reference had a misdemeanor DWI, I don't have any arrests but wondering if they look at the references that hard or if it would matter?

    Thanks,
    Terry

    How long ago? Just 1? I'd say no unless it was like, last week or something.

    Agree. It should be just fine. The biggest thing to worry about it picking people who won't change their minds months down the road when they finally get interviewed. If you have to swap out a reference mid-process it will cause big delays. The other thing is picking people who will respond quickly to phone calls or letters they receive in the mail. The references can make all the difference in how fast you get a permit. Choose close trusted people. The only people I would definitely stay away from are felons or people with weapon or assault arrests.

    I had a backup guy and he told me he got a public lewdness arrest back in 2005 3 weeks after getting out of the military and got drunk and pissed in public on main street in our small town. LOL

    I wouldn't worry about it too much Mr. Terry. You don't want all of your references to have convictions but one won't hurt. Especially DWI. They give those out like candy. It won't cause you any problems. After all, you're the applicant, not him. Get your application submitted ASAP. Like - today!

    If avoidable, then I'd avoid using them. If not, then use them but be prepared to have some questions asked about your association with them, that's all.
