Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
If the probation is SUCCESSFULLY completed without violation, then no. But you will need to present the information to the court to show that you have fully and successfully completed your probation terms and seek to have the information removed and/or "sealed" from your record. Many times, this is not something that is automatic - so I suggest that you check with the clerk of the court to see that the information has been removed.
The whole point of the "diverted" finding is to give a first-time or youthful offender a second chance to move forward without a criminal record.
If the probation is not successful then the judge can impose the original diverted or suspended sentence upon a finding that there has been a violation of the terms.
