so that means, police will never destroy my fingerprints after sealing of my case?
when i will apply for jobs, during background check, if they ask me whether u were convicted of any crime? whether you every plead guilty? what should i answer to these questions after sealing of my case?
also, since my case is sealed, can i go to canada? as i understand, canada doesn't not allow people with theft charges into their country. FYI - my conviction was for shoplifting.
what if, on the job application if they ask have you ever been arrested?
i never spent a day in the jail. so what should be my answer?
also, sometimes they ask explain it, if you plead guilty or have been arrested: what should be the correct terminology to explain it.
FYI - my disposition was: misdemnour B, 325 $ fine, 16 h community service, 11 months of deferred imposition.
one last question: how should i answer this?
have you ever been committed, been arrested for, been charged with or convicted of any criminal offense?
