I'm sorry. This was placed in US criminal law. I'll opt out and have it moved to Canada Criminal law. Please be patient as it may take a while for moderators to move it. You don't need to watch the site. When another expert replies you'll get an email.

I am a lawyer in Canada. Can you please read me the exact charge as I need to know if this is a provincial offence.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have the exact charge because it happened 5 years ago. I was given a ticket for public intoxication and was required to spend the night in the drunk tank while I sobered up. I no longer have the ticket. I haven't needed to take a criminal record check but now am required to have one for a job I am applying for. So I was wondering if this offence would appear on a criminal record check.
Criminal Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

It will not show up on a criminal record check because you were charged under the provincial offences act. That is not a criminal offence.

Do you understand what I mean?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I understand. So where would this provincial offence be recorded? Is it something that would show up when I have a background check performed by the accounting firm that has offered a job contingent upon a clean background check?
Criminal Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

It would not show up. It is like a speeding ticket.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This is the document that I am required to sign to give consent to "Garda" to perform the background check. So this offence would not show up when "Garda" accesses the information that they are requesting?Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offence for which a Pardon has not been issued in Canada? Yes No
If yes, please complete form entitled “DECLARATION OF A CRIMINAL RECORD”
I hereby give authorization to Garda, acting on behalf of _______________ to obtain the following information:
(Check all that apply)
Details regarding my employment history, including employment data verifications from any employer/position I have previously held;
References from any professional and personal associates I have or will provide, including information on my attendance, technical
skills, interpersonal relations and any other pertinent information related to my candidacy;
Details regarding any academic training, verification of any diplomas or degrees received; and verification of any professional
accreditations
I hereby consent to a consumer credit history inquiry with an ID verification and Social Insurance validation; which will include
information about me, including any previous bankruptcies, legal proceedings, collection actions, negative banking items and other
information reported by my creditors, and I hereby authorize any public or private institution to provide and release to Garda
information related to my credit record.
I authorize a search by a Canadian police service of the identification data bank via the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC)
for the following records:
I. Records of criminal convictions for which a pardon has not been granted in accordance with the Criminal Records Act;
And I understand that the police service will provide a response to Garda based on their search of these records. The response provided may
only be verified by providing fingerprints for comparison with the records held by the National Criminal Repository.
Criminal Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You have not been convicted of a criminal offence as I've already explained.

But this post has been going on for a long time and I don't get credit until you rate me so please do so now so that I can get credit.
