Just a few quick questions:

1. Are you talking about a criminal charge for embezzlement?

2. What state was the conviction in?

3. How long ago was it?

Thanks,
Christy

It never went to trial it was just a report filed no charges were filed. The state is Michigan and it was in 2006

I am unsure how this even came up since it wasn't even a charge.

However, you can have your entire record cleaned, if you wish.

In Michigan you have to wait at least 5 years after the incident, so you will have to wait a few years still.

After the time passes, you can get your records cleared.

Upon doing a background check the department found that an embezzlement report had been filed. No charges were brought against me. But this report is still there somewhere.
