I have a misdeameanor that was expunged in Ohio 8 years ago. For Professional Liscensing, I need to do FBI fingerprinting and Background check. Will this info show up? If so, is there anyway to remove or expunge this info from FBI records?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Ohio
Unfortunately, an expungement does not prevent the FBI from maintaining your records. Additionally, the only way to know for certain whether they have the records is to send in the request.
An expungement is a wonderful tool and, for the most part, permits a person with only a minor offense or two to clean up their record. However, in an effort to ensure the protection of society, the records are not completely destroyed and may be accessed in certain circumstances. This would include when seeking a license for professions such as medicine and child care.
I regret that my answer is unfavorable, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than a truthful response.
Please let me know if anything requires clarification.
