Hi,If the question wasn't there, leave well enough alone. If you mention it, you stand to lose the job, and if you don't, you stand to lose the job. If it was on the form and you somehow missed it and left it blank, tell the truth if they bring it up. But if it wasn't there, I sure wouldn't stir a pot that isn't boiling. Good luck!
According to your expert opinion, will such a conviction ever come on the way of my employment during background check. I haven't faced any though till now. My question is whether I need to remain concerned for any new employment going forward. Thanks for your help. To bring some clarity here are the exact details from the disposition report from Rockland County Court, NY.

Thanks for clarifying. One last question - the point is, even for some reason if the conviction above shows up during background check, should that be of any concern for someone in Computer/IT profession?
