The print search should not pull up the expunged conviction or arrest. The fingerprints remain in the database, but the record of the arrest or conviction will be removed if the state properly reports the expungement to the FBI. If a certified or authenticated copy of a court ordered expungement is submitted to the FBI along with a Final Disposition Report, the FBI will remove the record of the criminal arrest but not the record of the fingerprints themselves. An expungement is a deletion of a single arrest or an entire arrest record.If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
