    to ask you about whether or not you've committed crimes.

    Somewhere...somewhere...something about "self incrimination"....not sure...on the tip of my tongue...

      but it was then.  All the applications asked that, and a criminal background check was conducted. A disparity between the application and the background check would be grounds for not hiring.

      Although, thinking back on it, maybe the question was worded "Have you been convicted of any crimes other than traffic violations?"

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
