Default Michigan Barber license-Can you get one with a felony conviction?*Update*

I went to West Michigan College Of Barbering and on the student barbers license application that question we all hate was there "Have you benn convicted of a felony or misdermeanor for which you could have gone to jail"! What I would like to know is if anyone has or knows anyone thats been granted or denied a license for having a prior convition.Please give crime title and how long after crime they were granted or denied.
Thanks

I don't remember where I read it, but I read that if you have a felony you can't get a barber license. I was quite surprised because my man thought that he may want one some day. So I guess that is out of the question. Seems odd.

Maybe I'm not reading it correctly but it looks like you can get a license if the felony wouldn't prohibit you from serving the public in an honest and fair manner. On Page 46 Section 3(1)(d).....If I'm understanding it correctly. That is the only time "felony" appears in the document when you use the find feature.

Some prisoner barbers (not all) have their licenses while in prison so I don't see why you can't get one in streets! Please keep us posted so we have this information for the future!

UPDATE: I got DENIED lack of good moral character! It has been 10 years I have a clean record now and still get this stuff daily! I'm now doing a written petition for review. If I get denied again I will need to go infront of a judge. I will go to that point. I want to know if not after ten years, then when will I be rehabilitated?

What in the world are they thinking?? What does that have to do with being a barber?? I would think that 10 yrs with a clean record would constitute good moral character!!! What a crock!!! Rock on bubby!!! Take it before a judge!!! We'll support you!

I'm with you Mrs. D - those who judge are often the worst offenders - just look at many in the MDOC.

I know i'm a lil late, but Bubby, you say the felony was 10 years ago!!!!!!! Get it off of your record, felonies can be expunged after 5 years after release date. Get on it brother, and that way you wont be classified as a felon and they have to give you your license.

A felony can only be expunged after 5 years, if you have been convicted of only one felony in your lifetime and the maximum penalty was not life. If you could have got life and got probation or 2 years, it still cannot be expunged.

Wow I am late to respond to this! But I remember that they use to have that as one of the trades in MDOC; but they no longer offer it! I always thought felons could get barber license....I am glad you fought for it!

Default Barber/Cosmetolgist info

Hello All,

I am new to PTO and will be sentenced to MDOC on Dec. 5, 07. I'm currently out on bond and am using this time to get my stuff together concerning research on MDOC, programming and parole. I have run across this info. on Michigan occupational liscenses while perusing the web....It might be helpful....I am a degreed cell biologist, but I will never be able to work in my field again since I am no longer eligible for a Federal Controlled Substance Handler's Cert. Because of this I must now proactively think about what jobs I might be "allowed" to do once I get out.....If there are any forum members who are in a similar pre-sentence situation, I suggest that you do the same...dont wait to find out about any programs (AOP, GED,etc.) get your info now, print it out and take it with you or have your family send it to you now...'cause if you dont have a life bid...you WILL get out and you WILL have to make your way in the world. Anywhoo...here's some infor regarding the Barber/Cosmetology Board restrictions...

Barber


338.42 Judgment of guilt in criminal prosecution or judgment in civil action as evidence in determining good moral character;



Sec. 2.

A judgment of guilt in a criminal
prosecution or a judgment in a civil
action shall not be used, in and of itself,
by a licensing board or agency as proof of
a person's lack of good moral character.
It may be used as evidence in the
determination, and when so used the
person shall be notified and shall be
permitted to rebut the evidence by
showing that at the current time he or
she has the ability to, and is likely to,
serve the public in a fair, honest, and
open manner, that he or she is
rehabilitated, or that the substance of the
former offense is not reasonably related
to the occupation or profession for
which he or she seeks to be licensed.
