Hi,I'm Zoey.I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.
Unfortunately, yes. Any kind of fraud charge is a crime of moral turpitude in your state.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
Sorry, but for some unfathomable reason I did not get a message from the site that you asked a follow up. I apologize for the delay.
If the prosecutor agrees, you could get access to the record of this case restricted for non-criminal matters. You can read more about this process and see how to get it done here.
Meanwhile, if it is a conviction, you would be expected to answer questions on an application truthfully. That would mean disclosing it on the application. If you do this and ask for leniency, you may not get your license. If you fail to disclose it, however, and they find your conviction, you won't get your license either.
I strive for 5-star service. If I have addressed all of your concerns, please take the time to rate my service to you by selecting 3, 4, or (hopefully) 5 stars on the rating scale, as that is the only way that JustAnswer gives us Experts credit for our work. You would still be able to post further follow ups on this question thread about this for no additional cost, even after I've been rated.
Was this just an arrest? I assumed you were convicted of the crime.
Yes, it's restricted when the time has expired. That's why it didn't show up. If they ask about arrests, however, you still should disclose this to a licensing authority. As the PDF warns you, they may have other ways of learning about it and they can deal with an old non processed arrest much more easily than a present attempt to cover it up.
In that case, my last answer with regard to the restriction stands.
