I remember reading somewhere that under Jewish law, someone convicted by a court and who has paid for his wrongdoing (fine, jail, restitution, whatever) is entitled to a clean slate and does not have to disclose, or be asked about, his past actions (such as by a prospective employer). Is this so and what is the reference?

  • Are you asking about someone who has been convicted and punished by a Jewish court or a non-Jewish court? – Robert Columbia Mar 26 '18 at 0:49
