My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal
The real difficulty here is the Federal government. A misdemeanor
conviction for domestic violence
costs you your Federal gun
rights, which would make in impossible for you to become a police officer, since you would be unable to have anything to do with weapons.
If you pled guilty and/or admitted on the record to using or threatening force against a domestic partner, you lost your gun rights, which is a lifetime bar. Under such circumstances, the Federal government will consider a deferral a conviction for gun rights purposes.
Generally, a deferral will show on your RAP sheet as an arrest (a citation has the force and effect legally of an arrest) and a dismissal unless you got it sealed or expunged. Usually, even when records are completely destroyed for expungement
purposes, one copy remains with the agency that keeps the records and which can be accessed under certain circumstances by law enforcement.
So to recap, you can honestly say you have no criminal convictions. If you disclose this offense or if they find it, you would be ineligible for police work.
