I was not thinking of any specific person. But now that you have brought it up I think I remember something like that happening to a candidate a 2-3 years back.
I see it happen somewhat often (1-2 times per year).
I also speak to a fair amount of people who are ineligible for employment in certain situations and I never even get to the point of submitting their resume when I talk to them and they make me aware of the problem.
I think this is something that a lot of people don't realize. It's not just the prison sentence, but the difficulty in becoming a normal person again after the incident.
