I was convicted of a felony (by plea agreement) in January

I was convicted of a felony (by plea agreement) in January 2007 in Arizona. I live in Illinois. This is regards ***** ***** application in Illinois. The felony in Arizona was Non-Dangerous Non-repetitive Aggravated Assault from a DUI auto accident with no serious injury. No DUI related charge was filed. All other lessor charges dropped by mandate of the existing County Attorney (It was a broad office policy, nothing personal to my case. Everyone in the county arrested for a crime would be indicted under the most extreme crime at the top of the list of possibilities presented.). That County Attorney was later disbarred for "Defiling the Public Trust" after he left office for a laundry list of corruption. (If you're curious Google ***** ***** Maricopa County Defiling Public Trust for more detail on him) In*****"set-aside" the judgement vacating it. No other arrests before or since (I'm 65 now). After 6 years of trying, I have an opportunity for employment. (I was a CFO). On my application in 2016 in Illinois do I have to reveal this. As expungement and set-aside are defined as the same thing under Arizona law, but the record isn't expunged and (as I understand) cannot be sealed, but must remain public on the docket. Checking the felony box yes is cyanide. No one seems to care about the truth or the details. Too much fear and ignorance in the HR world. I've background checked myself in the past and the background agencies are all over the road on this. Some have all the charges, some have the 1 charge. None, including the Court Docket, have the Non-dangerous Non-repetitive aspect of this plea added as exists in the actual plea agreement document, the Court's sentencing transcript. To give all this to an HR person, is, well, stupid to be candid. Talking about it is like quicksand. The longer the conversation the worse it gets. The upside, I'll be a temp "Controller" at the company as "temp to hire" for 8 weeks before they formally offer me the direct hire job and I have to fill out their application before then. It's a small local division of an $8 billion public company, so I expect a background check will be SOP. Your thoughts? Thank you.
