I just had a quick question: If my father has a felony can he get into the master's program at a University? Back in 2004, my father got power of attorney for my Grandmother. He took care of my Grandmother, bathed her, took her to her doctor's appointments and everything. He also has this sister of his that is basically the worst form of human life. She never saw my grandmother, never took care of her, and never even called her, or even gave her a birthday card. In 2004, my father got the idea that it was legal to spend my Grandmother's money as he saw fit so that he would get it all and my Aunt wouldn't get any. After all, he figured that he was taking care of my Grandma, and my aunt never saw her, so why should she get any of the money? He even checked with a lawyer and the lawyer said that he could do anything that he wanted with the money, and he couldn't be penalized by court of law for it.
In 2007, she took my father to court and pressed charges against my father. Most of the lawyers and even the judge that this should be a civil case and not a criminal one, but my aunt was so bloodthirsty that she went for the jugular and said, "She wanted to see my father in jail". Anyway, so he got charged with two crimes, "Neglect of the Elderly not resulting in great bodily harm" and "Exploitation of the Elderly". He was convicted of two felonies and was sent to prison in 2008.
However, he was very well behaved in prison and got out early for good behavior. Finally, in March of 2011, he got out of prison. Every since then, my father has had almost an impossible time finding a job. He was an English teacher in the public school system for 20 years, and they told him that he can't go back with his felony. My father is literally reduced to taking fast food jobs now even though he has numerous years of experience and a bachelor's degree in communications.
My question is, with my father's felonies will he be a able to get into college for a master's program? Keep in mind that he already has a bachelor's degree from the University that he is planning on attending. In addition, my father has not been in any additional trouble and has had perfect behavior since. Plus, it is not a drug charge either. Plus my father had a very good GPA at the end of his Bachelor's program. Do you think he can get in Grad school?
