An applicant was denied authorization to work in a personal care home owing to her conviction for three non-violent felony offenses in 2009.  At the time she sought authorization, the applicant was on parole and had yet to complete the terms of her sentence.  However, she established that she was qualified to work in a personal care facility, despite her criminal record and pending sentence, through evidence that she had thus far satisfactorily complied with all the terms of her parole, obtained employment, and exhibited good character overall.
