(2) While unlicensed, knowingly and willfully committed or aided and abetted in the commission of any act for which a license is required by this chapter; or

(3) Been convicted in any jurisdiction of the United States of a felony or a misdemeanor if the licensing authority finds that the conviction reflects unfavorably on the fitness of the applicant to engage in the alarm business.
