I am applying for a NYS PI /WGP /Support Staff license through a new job i am starting on Monday. The company that hired me said i passed their background check. However I am worried about the license. I have a misdemeanor conviction on my record. The original charges we a few felonies such as assault and robbery in the second degree. I did not commit these crimes but i pleaded guilty because i was 18 and scared to face jailtime.As part of the paperwork that has to get sent for the license i have to include a disposition, accusatory instrument(police statement) and a written explanation of what happen. I need to know if my best route is to Just say I did the crime and talk about all my accomplishments since then or Say I didn't do it and I just said I did so I would go to jail. Please help me out here I am very confused on what to do. Thanks.

Your questions confuses a little bit. First you say that you passed their background check which would be likely if you only have a misdemeanor on your record. If you only have a misdemeanor on your record, why do you say you pled guilty to a felony. Since this is important you might want to consult a criminal defense attorney to help you with this paperwork and your explanation. Definitely bring all these facts to an attorney and have them help you.
