I was arrested in 2006 in Indiana, but I never plead, was never

Resolved Question:

I was arrested in 2006 in Indiana, but I never plead, was never charged, and the case was deferred and then dismissed. I have since had the arrest expunged from my record. I will soon be applying for a medical license in Indiana and don't know if I can answer "no" to the question "Have you ever been arrested...."

Yes, you can deny the arrest, and there will be no way to determine that you are not truthful.

According to Indiana law, after expungement
"no information concerning the arrest may be placed or retained in any state central repository for criminal history information or in any other alphabetically arranged criminal history information system maintained by a local, regional, or statewide law enforcement agency."

Accordingly, there will be no record of the arrest.
