This answer was rated:

Hi,
Upon conducting a background check for work, it appears my record shows a traffic record reported from the Arizona Admin Office of Courts. It states Type -Traffic: Filed - 4/1/11: Disposed - 5/10/11: Disposition - Bail/deposit given/Forfeited: Party - Defendant: Citation Type - City Police: Case Category - Traffic: Counts - 1. This was most likely a speeding ticket from a trip to Arizona. To my knowledge it was paid. Why would this show up on a criminal Records Report? What does disposed mean? Am I able to remove this?
Thank you

Alex J. Esq. :

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to answer your question.

Alex J. Esq. :

Are you online with me?

Alex J. Esq. :

Welcome to JustAnswer.com

Alex J. Esq. :

I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

Customer:

Yes

Alex J. Esq. :

Do you remember if this was a criminal speeding ticket in Arizona?

Customer:

Not certain what a criminal speeding ticket is? I believe it may have been something like 57 in a 45 mile zone . . . not entirely certain. It was in Scottsdale via one of those cameras in the overpasses.

Alex J. Esq. :

Well, generally criminal speeding would be either 20 miles over the limit or over 85mph, so it doesn't sound that it was criminal / excessive speeding.

Alex J. Esq. :

Are you sure that this citation was paid?

Alex J. Esq. :

Did you have to post bail/bond?

Customer:

As I recall, just sent the payment in sometime after receiving citation in the mail. I live in Massachusetts, therefore did not appear in court. No bail, no bond.

Alex J. Esq. :

Well, the best thing to do would be to contact the court where you sent the payment and to check with them to make sure the payment was received.

Alex J. Esq. :

Do you remember if you were required to appear in court?

Customer:

Sure, will do. However was wondering whether this is a normal thing that would appear on background check?

Alex J. Esq. :

Sometimes traffic offenses would be picked up by background checks.

Alex J. Esq. :

But also, it is possible that the payment wasn't received by the court.

Customer:

OK thank you for your feedback

I wish you the best of luck.
