A recent article in The Wall Street Journal told the story of a person who had a 2001 conviction for misreporting the status of a loan on the books of a bank where he was employed. As a result of that conviction, this person lost his job in May 2015 when a background check revealed the conviction. 

Despite a 2009 study that found that after ten to thirteen year ex-offenders pose no great risk of having involvement with other offenses, there are still many employers who are reluctant to hire people whose background checks reveal criminal convictions. 

As such, it is advisable for folks in Centre County and the outlying areas to call Lisko & Associates at 814-237-6673.
