Ok, it was amended to persistent disorderly conduct. Does that make a difference, and how do I get this FBI form? Also, as far as an employment BGC, I read on the Ohio Attorney General's website that if you were arrested for a crime and not convicted of it (in this case it was amended to lesser charge), then it cannot be visible to consumer report requests. I used to work as an intern in a prosecutor's office, and much has changed since I was privy on the law.
So I should consult with my attorney on the firearm issue, correct? Putting the firearm issue aside...Am I correct that under FCRA in Ohio, the employer will only see conviction for the DC and not the Domestic violence then? Also, I had a DUI when I was 20 and am currently 28. I cannot find the DUI on my record on any self-consumer reports I paid for. What could be the issue there?
I check on "been verified.com" and "peoplewise.com". It shows a lot of my not so bright college issues, but the DUI does not show up even though everything before and after does. It was in Bowling Green Municipal Court, Ohio.
Do I need to go to the charging court or is there a legit website to use? I am tired of spending money on sites that seem pretty shakey. I have also been told that many professional BGC companies will only go back seven years on a criminal check unless it is a felony. And driving records go for 5 years. Are there any statues in place that call for this in law, or is it a matter of time and money on the inquiring party's part?
So even if the conviction and record check isn't in Ohio, they will still try to comply with CA law just in case? It amazes me that a speeding ticket I had when I was 19 shows up, but a year later when I got the DUI, that is not on any of the records. How about the driving record? Stipulations on that since my local court house will only go back 3 years?
That is interesting considering that I selected criminal records and driving record on both websites. Could the issue be with the fact that it was disposed in municipal court in the town/county that I do not live in presently or for the past 5 years? If the case is 7 years on this issue, then I would be ecstatic. Have you run into issue where the employer doesn't want to search farther than 7 years?
Yes I do and I appreciate you help on this matter. I will check into the FBI thing as well as consult with my family attorney. Have a good evening.
