Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
I too have been through a few FBI background checks.
It is better to disclose than to hide it and have them find it.
You should disclose it and then explain that you were innocent and that the charges were dropped.
Or that the case was dismissed.
ok..so they will receive a report on the arrest?
Yes, they will likely see it, but they will also see that it was dismissed.
Did you plea or get out away with no penalty?
my attorney entered a plea of not guilty and that is as far as it went
Perfect, then you are innocent and just need to disclose it on your form.
I am sorry, which form are you referring to? The school is using a 3rd party for a general background check, social services check, and then FBI check
