I applied to the program back in November with Inscrita # 366 and now I am at the admitida stage. I'm excited to go teach in Spain but I have one concern. Back in August 2010 I was charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence, a.k.a OWI), the result of which is a deferred judgment if I complete one year of unsupervised probation. In theory, a deferred judgment will prevent any conviction from showing up on my criminal record. As I understand, however, the FBI background check is in-depth enough that it will dig up any time you were ever fingerprinted, so this will still show up.
Anyway, I'm wondering how big of an obstacle this DUI charge on my record will be in being accepted to the Auxiliares program and in obtaining a visa to work in Spain. Anyone had any experience with such a situation?
