Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
An adjudication withheld is not a formal conviction for criminal law purposes (although in certain instances it can have similar effects, such as constituting a conviction for DMV purposes, if it was for a DUI, etc...). So it's entirely accurate to say that you have not been convicted, because this is not legally a conviction.
Ok great thanks
It could still show up on your criminal record, as an arrest, etc... in that it's not an expungement, but it's not a conviction and therefore you can certainly answer "no" when asked if you've been convicted.
