Just getting arrested isn't bad. One can get arrested for protesting a tree being cut down, for example. One can get arrested for a misdemeanor, and the charges dismissed.

If someone's been convicted now that's more of an issue. And of course, the severity of the charges. But just because someone was convicted and did time for something like theft, or whatnot, doesn't mean they will always be a thief or cannot reform.

I agree that they should be honest upfront, and not get bent out of shape over a background check.
