Hello, and welcome.

If the record has been expunged, it's as if the infraction never existed, it's 'erased,' so you wouldn't need to declare it on the application.

I hope this helped.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you. When you were arrested your fingerprints were sent to an fbi database which even if your record was expunged you still need to show proof of that in the interview. You will need to take proof of that because depending on how long ago this happened your fingerprints are still in the system . If you lie on the application you can get denied for that .
