SEC Fingerprinting with a Felony Conviction
I recently accepted a equity research internship with a middle market bank for the summer. I have a felony conviction for criminal recklessness that is set to convert to a misdemeanor April '18. I applied to have the conviction converted sooner and was denied this week. I was counting on that conversion, now I'm not sure what to do. The bank never asked me to submit to a background check and there was not a felony checkbox on the application. Two SEC fingerprint cards came with my intern pack and I'm required to have them done by my start date pursuant to SEC Rule 17f-2. Upon fingerprinting the SEC will surely unearth my felony, will this prevent my employment?
