It's in the nature of the job...sure he can get hired doing something else but going into a law enforcement position isn't as easy to do with a misdemeanor drug charge. Yes, mistakes happen and people learn from them but just because you do, it doesn't mean you will get hired by certain companies with a criminal record. What's the big deal? If her husband couldn't get a job before now, he certainly isn't going to be able to get one in Brunswick County after this. And skeletons in the closet? A criminal background check conducted on the husband revealed his skeletons-why complain because he wasn't hired? Pick yourself up and move on. If it's just Mr. Right discriminating then why couldn't he be hired on with another Brunswick County department?
This is just bad publicity. It looks bad enough complaining about not being hired due to reputation/background but when your wife has to do it for you, it's even worse.
