Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good evening,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. Are you applying for a job with the government, a bank of a school district?
While it is necessary to declare the arrest when you apply for your teaching license with the state, when asked by the school district whether you have ever been arrested---if the expungement was of not only the criminal possession charge, but of the arrest as well (you need to look at your expungement order), then you may answer no when asked about the arrest record.
If the arrest was not itself included in the expungement order, then you will have to respond that you have previously been arrested.
