That is correct
Actually I think someone did have charges against them, but just not me. They took me to the police station and had me wait for someone to pick me up.
So I have to wait for a hearing to take place. Nothing else will take it off right now as it is keeping me from getting a job.
It is a job at a power plant
No I wasn't. They asked if there were any violations that may show up on a background check. When I went for the 2nd interview they said it did show up and that PPL would not allow me to get the job with that on the record.
Could you tell me how they could put something on your record in the first place if you were never charged?
How could I find out for sure if it is on my record at all?
ok thanks for your help
