I have a relative who served time for aggravated burglary when he was in his late teens. Awful crime. He's the most fabulous guy now. He grew up, changed his life and is a doting father and husband.
It would depend on the crime (no to sex offenders or anything to do with children) and also depend on how long ago the crime had been committed and the circumstances surrounding that person's life then and now.
Some people are capable of change.
Oh, and they'd have to be honest with me about it as soon as reasonably possible in the relationship.

Depends on the crime. Those who say it's really difficult to be imprisoned - perhaps not for much longer. If you look up the Adelaide man who was almost imprisoned due to the new laws in the building industry & ABCC, you will realise things are changing He was very close to being imprisoned for not attending a meeting with the ABCC after he and work collegues left the site due to it being unsafe!!

23-01-2012 10:00 #47So would you date someone who has previously been to jail?
But if they continued to see the same people on the outside and follow the same kind of lifestyle? Hell no.

Unless that person is up front and honest you would never know.
It would entirely depend on the crime for me. Hurting women/children would be a deal breaker. As would stealing...I hate thieves.

Yeah I know a guy who got in a fight who was sentenced for over a year. He didn't just go up and bash the other guy, it was a fight, they were both willing participants, it was an ongoing family feud. But the one I know came out on top and the other guy ended up being quite sick (hes fine now). If it were my child or husband that had hurt someone like that I would be sickened to be honest, and I really fel for the other guy. But the one who went to jail had no priors, hes not a violent person by nature. I was very surprised he didn't get a suspended sentence. He is not a bad person and I would date someone like him.
Also in NT and WA they used to have mandatory sentencing, meaning the magistrate had no discretion over sentencing, if you were on your third property offence, you automatically go to jail. Many people went to jail for the most ridiculous crimes (ie stealing a chocolate bar). It was horrible.
