If that crime was a felony then he wouldn't even be eligible to be a Mason here. Felony = automatic out. There may be some weird way you can override that, but I highly doubt it.
Also, our petition has 3 pages at the end of it where you sign forms allowing a private 3rd party background check company to perform a background check on you. So, many of those with criminal histories never even get past the petition phase because they refuse to turn in the petition once they see that my GL requires a full background check. You have to submit all your info and your SSN in order to be background checked. It tends to keep the criminals away.
