Unfortunately it would be very difficult if not impossible to pass the background investigation with this type of conviction on his record. He will probably have to discuss it in his interview as well, as most job applications have a box to check that says "have you ever been convicted of a felony?"

This type of topic has come up in the open forum bulletin board several times. Do a search in the open forum for some advice.

best of luck
