1)         The applicant, any member of the firm, partnership, or association which is the applicant, any officer or stockholder of the corporation which is the applicant, or the person designated to manage or supervise the facility has been convicted of any of the following crimes during the previous five years.  Such convictions shall be verified by a certified copy of the record of the court of conviction.
