69V-40.00112 Effect of Law Enforcement Records on Applications for Loan Originator, Mortgage Broker, and Mortgage Lender Licensure.

 

(1) General Procedure Regarding Law Enforcement Records. For the purposes of this rule each loan originator applicant and each control person of a mortgage broker and mortgage lender license applicant shall be referred to collectively as “relevant persons.” If the mortgage broker or mortgage lender license applicant is a natural person, he or she is a relevant person under this rule. As part of the application review process, the Office is required to consider a relevant person’s law enforcement record when deciding whether to approve an application for licensure as a loan originator, mortgage broker, or mortgage lender. When conducting this review, the Office reviews the relevant person’s Form MU1, MU2 or MU4 responses and criminal history information derived from the fingerprint check. In the event of a question regarding the relevant person’s criminal history, the Office will request additional information from the relevant person to determine the status of a criminal event, the specific facts and circumstances surrounding a criminal event, or to address other issues determined to be relevant to the review of the law enforcement record. The Office will notify the applicant of any specific documents that it requires in order to complete its review. The requested documents must be legible. Documentation that is typically requested includes:

 

(a) A copy of the police arrest affidavit, arrest report or similar document.

(b) A certified copy of the charges.

(c) A certified copy of the plea, judgment, and sentence where applicable.

(d) A certified copy of an order of entry into pre-trial intervention, and the order of termination of pre-trial intervention showing dismissal of charges where applicable.

(e) A certified copy of an order of termination of probation or supervised release, if applicable. If the requested documentation cannot be obtained, the relevant person shall submit evidence of that fact in order for the application to be deemed complete. Evidence that documentation cannot be obtained shall consist of a written statement on the letterhead of the agency that would be the custodian of the documents, signed by a representative of that agency, stating that they have no record of such matter, or that the record is lost or was damaged or destroyed, or otherwise stating why the document cannot be produced.

(2) Classification of Crimes.

(a) The Office makes a general classification of crimes into four classes: A, B, C and D as listed in subsections (13), (14), (15) and (16) of this rule.

(b) These classifications reflect the Office’s evaluation of various crimes in terms of moral turpitude and the seriousness of the crime as such factors relate to the prospective threat to public welfare typically posed by a person who would commit such a crime.

(c) The names and descriptions of crimes, as set out in the classification of crimes, are intended to serve only as generic names or descriptions of crimes and shall not be read as legal titles of crimes, or as limiting the included crimes bearing the exact name or description stated.

(d) For purposes of this rule, “trigger date” means the date on which an applicant was found guilty, or pled guilty, or pled nolo contendere to a crime.

(e) A charge in the nature of attempt or intent to commit a crime, or conspiracy to commit a crime, is classified the same as the crime itself.

(3) Effect on Licensure of Commitment of Single Crime. The Office finds it necessary to implement the following standards for applications with a relevant person whose law enforcement record includes a single crime, subject to the mitigating factors set forth in this rule before licensure. All periods referenced in this rule run from the trigger date.

(a) Class A Crime. The applicant is not eligible for licensure.

(b) Class B Crime. The applicant will not be granted a license until 15 years have passed since the trigger date.

(c) Class C Crime. The applicant will not be granted a license until 7 years have passed since the trigger date.

(d) Class D Crime. The applicant will not be granted a license until 5 years have passed since the trigger date.
