There are companies that will hire you as a RSO. What everyone has said about time from conviction or completetion to when they will hire you is what makes the difference. Whether they go by completion or conviction is up to the company. I highly recommend you talk to companies and be upfront with them. CFI is fairly lenient with backgrounds. I would certainly speak with them. Just be patient as they are busy. We are not here to judge you, just help you with good, honest advice, from our own personal experience. Good luck.

you can be labeled a sex offender for anything these days.

Yes, that is certainly true.

Like I said, we all wish the best for you. I'm hoping you'll keep us in the loop, because we've had plenty of people in your situation looking for trucking jobs. It's possible you may get your foot in the door. Just remember when you hear the term "second chance company," you're hearing what truck drivers have labeled them. Nobody I know of has a business plan stating they want to hire high risk persons to be their drivers.

This is a safety sensitive position. Some companies are slightly less stringent in their requirements, but none of them call themselves "second chance companies." Be patient with the process, and apply everywhere you can. Hopefully you can get in and get rolling. Keep in touch with us. We aren't judgemental, we will help you any way we can.

Glenn, I really hesitated on making this reply because you have already received advice here beyond what I can offer. And I'm sure you have already explored this with your lawyer. But is there anyway you can make a settlement with the victim in which you admit your mistake and agree to make reparations? I'm not at all recommending sweeping this under the carpet, but it may keep it off your record. The court may cooperate with this approach if you are willing to go the extra mile. I've seen it happen before.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Thank you everyone for the replies!

My crime had no direct contact with a victim.

I will definitely stay in touch, should have answers in about 5 months

Thanks for the input and kind words.

I noticed you mentioned a company [CFI] that is a bit more lenient on the background checks... it would be awsome if you all could chime in and agree on what companies may be the more "lenient" companies to try first.

I am also trying to find the "smaller business" trucking employers around here. As I have read that they may give me better chances

Sex offenders for life.... but was their conviction 10 years ago showing they changed or at least control themselves?

something recent has a different impact than something from years ago.

Here are a few of the “second chance” companies that are well known for being lenient. C. R. England, Carolina Cargo and Western Express.

CRST has also been known to give someone a chance when their past is less than stellar.

The main problem for you is how recent.

Understood.
