Felony conviction and becoming an accountant/CPA


W

Warren Dekker

My nephew had a felony conviction for marijuana possession when he was
18, for something like 1.5 ounces. He is now 21, has grown up a lot,
and wants to go to college.

He is interested in accounting, and asked me about it, but I am
wondering if this felony on his record would make him ineligible to
become a CPA. Does a felony on one's record make one ineligible to
become a CPA?

Thanks to all who reply,


Warren

It probably does. The regs vary by state. I do know that in Arizona a felony
conviction prevents a person from being a CPA. Check worth your state.

A bankruptcy filing in Ontario prevents you from getting a CGA/CMA (so I
have been told by one of each).
