a. If you have ever been convicted of any of the following crimes, submit certified copies of all court and police records showing the charges and dispositions for every conviction. You must do so even if your records were sealed or otherwise cleared or if anyone, including a judge, law enforcement officer, or attorney, told you that you no longer have a record.

2. Have you ever been convicted by a court of law (civil or criminal) or court martialed by a military tribunal for any of the following crimes:

2.a. Domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and neglect, dating violence, elder abuse or stalking? (Please refer to Page 3 of the instructions for the full definition of the term “domestic violence”).

2.b. Homicide, murder, manslaughter, rape, abusive sexual contact, sexual exploitation, incest, torture, trafficking, peonage, holding hostage, involuntary servitude, slave trade, kidnapping, abduction, unlawful criminal restraint, false imprisonment or an attempt to commit any of these crimes?

2.c. Three or more convictions for crimes relating to a controlled substance or alcohol not arising from a single act?

These questions must be answered even if your records were sealed or otherwise cleared or if anyone, including a judge, law enforcement officer, or attorney, told you that you no longer have a record. Using a separate sheet(s) of paper, provide information relating to the conviction(s), such as crime involved, date of conviction and sentence.
