Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your criminal problem today.
If they do a background check, the charge will show up on your criminal record. It is always better not to lie on an application - if they find out you lied, you are a dishonest person NOW (present day), which is worse than being a criminal THEN (30 years ago).
ok Thanks Ill just write a letter explaining
That would probably be the best idea.
Hope it works out!
