Hello,

Are you asking whether this will turn up on a level 2 background check? The answer is that yes, it should unless you formally had it expunged, assuming you were eligible to do so. However, if it does show up, it should show up as an arrest and a dismissal.

It was Adjudication withheld and i received 3 years probation this was over 15 years ago. Is that the same as dismissal?
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 2 years ago

It won't show as a conviction because the conviction was never filed with the court. So while it's not really the same as a dismissal, it allows you to truthfully say that you have never been convicted of a felony.
