If your friend lives Virginia, in view of lying to police, indicates a misconduct of character that may impede admission to the bar of the state. While i am not sure what Law school would do with your friend, i know for sure your friend has a lot of explanation to do with the bar in the state he intends to practice in. And he can pretty much forget about being a prosecutor.
God damn, your friend is stupid.
Just for kicks, Class 1 misdemeanor, if convicted means a maximum jail time of 1 year, at a minimum a permanent criminal record.
I think you are being a bit hasty, yes what he did was incredibly stupid, but he hasn't been convicted of anything yet.
Whenever someone applies for a job in law enforcement (prosecutors, police officers etc), they hook you up to a lie detector and they ask you if you have ever cheated, lied, or steal. If the answer is yes even if you discloses it truthfully, thats ground for instant dismissal (This is no joke, there are candidates booted from police academy because they lie on very trivial stuff not to mention major league stuff like this).
You have no idea what you're talking about. They definitely do not ask you those questions. Obviously someone has lied at some point in their life (i.e. as a teenage to their parents). Questions they would ask you would be something along the lines of "have you ever taken or trafficked any illegal substances" or "have you ever participated in physical violence against another person."
Strange thing, they ask me that as a pre-req to police academy. And no, they did not ask stuff like "have you ever taken or trafficked any illegal substances" or "have you ever participated in physical violence against another person." (Because they already know when they did the background check). They ask stuff like "Have you ever downloaded porn from the internet", "have you ever stole a pen from your work place". The whole idea is to gauge whether you're trust worthy by answering truthfully about commonplace things they couldn't find out in background investigation but had statistically truthful response to it.
Oh yeah, i heard plenty of stories about cadets getting booted for lying on the most ridiculous thing.
BTW, they definitely do that if someone wants to be in law enforcement, i.e. prosecutors being one of them.

Ok, so the answer to the question of whether you've ever lied cheated or stole would be 'yes, yes, and yes.' When I was seven I lied to my mom when she asked me if I brushed my teeth. I then cheated in monopoly. And I stole Susan's pink pearl eraser during math class.
