Mmd convictions question


#1

i am applying for my merchant mariners document and have my application completed. all thats left is the signed conviction statement. i can remember all of my convictions, just not the exact date.all of which are misdemeanors. i can describe in detail the events, just not the date. i know they are well over 5 years old, most closing in on 8 years. will this give me problems during the application process??i have all my stcw95 certs,clean drug screen, and fit for duty evaluation and i would hate to have wawsted all the time and money to not not get my mmd. also, do i need to state convictions as a minor?

In your accompanying letter state you do not know the exact date. I have no idea if you have to state convictions as a minor. As long as you did not murder someone or traffic in drugs in the last 10 years you should be OK. There is a list of convictions with the effect on your MMD somewhere on this website. Find it.

Include a separate written statement with as much information as you remember. If you don’t remember the dates, say that and make yor best estimate of when.

Thank you gentleman, that makes me feel much at ease. So just one letter for all my convictions or a separate letter for each? I think I might have read that somewhere.
