I have done more than just "a bit of python" as I've been learning and practicing since last august.

That's good, but it isn't me you need to convince. Write a CV and apply for some junior python jobs, see how you get on!

I did run a background check on myself, but it was a state keyword state background check and nothing showed up, but is that suppose to make a difference?

You don't need it to make a difference, you are the only one holding yourself back. Forget your history, you don't need to disclose it to anyone, get on with your life and start applying for jobs you like. Just don't expect to get the first few you go for.
