Can I rent an apt? I have a good job and great rental history, but I have a criminal misdemeanor theft record.

My credit is not great, but decent. I didn't answer the criminal record questions because I have 10 yr old misdemeanors. I was denied today for an apartment who uses a company called First Advantage Safe Rent Inc to decide whether a potential tenant should be apprved or declined and I was declined.
