I live in Sacramento, Ca. Two years ago I applied foe a job with the state. On the application the question " have you been convicted of a felony in the past seven years?" was asked. Since my list eligibility was good for one year only, I am applying again. This time the application asks the question "have you ever been convicted of a felony?". My question is: Is there a time limit for this question? I.E. convicted in past X years, instead of just have you EVER been convicted? What California statuet or law covers this question?
