How long would be a reasonable time to forgive a potential renter's prior history?

Asked by Divalicious (2170points) October 1st, 2008

Due to the housing market, my house flipping is turning into rental properties. How much time should pass before forgiving non-felony criminal history? Cannabis possession, domestic violence, vicious dog, etc. Can I legally refuse anyone with charges greater than traffic offenses?
Being a corrections officer, I know the rate of recidivism. I’m afraid I’ll never rent to anyone!
