My Class B misdmeanor was expunged from my record 14 years ago.If asked if I have a conviction do I say Yes/No ?

Hi

The purpose of an expunction is so you can honestly answer no to any questions involving "have you ever been convicted of a crime" whether Felony or Misdemeanor.

Therefore, you may honestly answer No to such a question.

However, if the question says have you ever been arrested then you have to say yes, because the arrest may appear on a background check unless you have also had those arrest records "sealed" which many times is a separate process from expungement.

The records concerning a conviction will show up as "Expunged" with no further detail, however.
