trying to get a trucking job but have question about hit and run charge

by Mr. Travis Demien
(Memphis,Tn usa)

When I was a young man about the age of 26 i was being robbed by another man. After being stabbed by the man, I chose to defend myself from being killed.

I didn't realize at the time that because I didn't call the cops first that I was going to be arrested for Aggravated Assault.

Unfortunately i plea bargained down with the prosecuting attorney for a simple assault, because I could not afford Legal Representation for this incident.

I agreed to 11 months of probation and completed that. This actually occurred in the year of 2003 and is stopping me from being successful with a CDL A that i got in 2006 from Cr England trucking.

I am also being accused of a hit and run on a telephone pole in the state of Ohio. I have tried to contact to make payment arrangements with the city that it happened in and they are impossible to reach.

I need help finding out if i can still drive for another Company through the s.c.p. in the state of Memphis,Tn where i live.

I am a veteran from the Army and Navy with 9yrs exp.
I also went to there Hazmat school and graduated for moving fuel.
I have three years of OTR experience plus the military(national guard for three years.
Could you pls help?

Have your records sealed on the assault charge this can be done at the court of conviction once it is signed employers will no longer see it*****but if they run a justice report (government clearance positions) it will be there**** but it so old that you probably wont have a problem with it....The accident one takes a little bit of work...most cities have websites google search engine state of and city of choice and then click on the site and e-mail someone for a response. If this is on your driving report as an accident****well you are gonna have a problem getting hired. You are then an Insurance risk.
