Blackmail at 16 -- great start I hope you have learned your lesson. Check with your lawyer/ solicitor. I'm not familiar with N.Z. law but your juvenile record may be sealed and you may not even be required to disclose the conviction. alternatively, you may be able to have the juvi record expunged after the passage of some time.

Its funny, In America we often talk about people getting blackmailed, etc, but it isn't common to hear someone (other than mafia) to be convicted for it.

I have no idea what it means to convicted for blackmail in New Zealand. It could be a major crime or it could define something not so egregious.

In the US many small crimes are expunged from your record when you hit 21. (or 18 in some states, I guess).

Were you convicted as a minor? If yes and have no adult record you should be fine. To be a nurse or a doctor you can NOT have a record or have ever been convicted of substance use.
