    I’ve been hired on with Liberty Mutual and have been prepping to take the p&c exam to get licensed... however I have a class b misdemeanor for possession of theft from 2013 that is still pending with a warrant.

    I also have a class b misdemeanor theft charge for under $500.

    Do I have any chances of getting my license application approved? Has anyone else gone through the same thing only to get denied?

    Slim.

    According to the TDI website:

    https://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/124400.pdf

    The cited sections can be found at:

    Texas Administrative Code

    INSURANCE CODE CHAPTER 4005. CONDUCT, DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS, AND SANCTIONS

    Does LM know about your criminal background?

    Yes LM knows, they did a pretty extensive background check and did not mention anything about the criminal aspect. I got a copy of the background info they pulled and all of the information concerning the charges was there... so I know they know. I brought up my concerns and my trainer advised that the LM licensing coordinator will do what she can to work with me.

    The theft charge was dismissed. The possession charge is still pending.

    All you can do is wait and see. If LM is willing to back you up with the TDI, you might have a better chance.
