(225 ILCS 459/67)
Good moral character.
If an applicant, registrant, controlling person, or any person with ownership interest in the applicant or registrant, has had a license or registration revoked on a prior occasion, has been found to have committed any of the practices enumerated in Section 65, has been convicted of or entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere to forgery, embezzlement, obtaining money under false pretenses, larceny, extortion, conspiracy to defraud, or a similar offense or offenses, or has been convicted of a felony involving moral turpitude in a court of competent jurisdiction in this State or any other state, district, or territory of the United States or of a foreign country, the Department may consider the prior revocation, conduct, or conviction in its determination of moral character of the applicant, registrant, controlling person, or person with ownership interest and whether to grant the registration or renewal. In its consideration of the prior revocation, conduct, or conviction, the Department shall take into account the nature of the conduct, any aggravating or extenuating circumstances, the time elapsed since the revocation, conduct, or conviction, the rehabilitation or restitution performed, and any other factors that the Department deems relevant. When an applicant, registrant, controlling person, or person with ownership interest has made a false statement of material fact on any application, the false statement may in itself be sufficient grounds to revoke or refuse to issue or renew a registration.
