Hi,I am in a diversion program for for a ciivilians arrest for trespassing. I went to court and I pleaded no lo contendere and they put me in a diversion program where I have to see a doctor. I was told this would not show on my record. However I have an employment application that asks whether I've been convicted of a felony and misdeameanor. Would I have to answer yes to this question. I was told I was not convicted but I would like to make sure what the legal ramificatios are. Thank you.

How do I get an item off my criminal record?In 1994..I was 24 and I had to go to court for charge of aggravated battery. Drunk guy in bar jumped me and started beating me up so I grabbed pool stick to hold him off me. Jurge said if I didn't get in any more trouble for the next year all charges would be dropped because I was the one who looked battered. I have never had to go to court again. However,when I got background check done to work Canada...it shows aggravated battery but says no action taken. I am an avid hunter and have no problem getting hunting licence but how do I get this off ? I reside in NW Georgia and have for 20 yrs and this was from court in W Palm Beach Florida. Tks. Neil.

Everyone. 2 years ago when I was a dumb 18 year old and with

Hi everyone. 2 years ago when I was a dumb 18 year old and with a group of bad friends I got to drunk and got arrested. I spent the night in jail and was charged with 647(F)PC. I never had to go to court I just spent the night in jail. Long story short I am applying to become a flight attendant now and one of the questions are have you ever been arrested or charged with a misdemeanor or or felony? So I ran a background check on myself on the Internet for $19 and the only thing that shows up is a speeding ticket I got in Arizona in 2013. Am I allowed to say no since I never went to court/ it doesn't show up on my record? Or will it show up on my record just not this site I used.

Wisconsin--My daughter was arrested on 3/31/2016 and

Wisconsin--My daughter was arrested on 3/31/2016 for OWI and released within a couple hours. She was given a mandatory court appearance for 4/18/2016. She went and they never had her on the schedule of appearance and the sheriff and bailiff told her it takes 8 months to get blood test back for drugs/OWI, and that it wouldn't even pay for her to get an attorney until the results come back because there isn't a criminal complaint yet. They rescheduled her court appearance for December 2016. Since than she received a letter stating there was no alcohol in her system. Is it legal for them to wait 9 months to charge her?

My husband is facing DV felony charge in CA. He has violence

My husband is facing DV felony charge in CA. He has violence histories and has been arrested from punching a man at cafe last year. But the man didnt press charge on my husband. I was wondering if police has a record of that episode.Also he used to work at nave base in different country (he wasnt a member of nave, working as sales person) He had a fight with others out side of base and arrested by local police,then moved to police station on the base. He didnt get charged either. Can police or criminal court in CA have access to these information?
