Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.If your friend was never formally charged with anything, even if a complaint was made about him, there is no formal record that he will need to disclose. There is a record of the complaint (as that is public record), but that record is not a criminal record or any sort of a direct claim that can in any way affect your friend. So no, this will not follow him around as it is not a conviction, merely a complaint.Good luck.
