My husband is trying to get a job and we had a domestic dispute about 3 years ago. Either his probation officer or his lawyer said it would be hidden from his record when he finished paying the court fees. He just got a job pending his background check, but the background check came back that he pleaded guilty to domestic violence. He was told by his lawyer that he had to plead guilty, when I don't think he really did, but because he admitted to guilt...it's on his record. It was a misdemeanor in harassment, not domestic violence. How can we either get it to show what it really was or hidden? We would prefer for it to be hidden like someone told him it would be.

If he plead guilty to a charge to harassment and the alleged victim was person he had an intimate relationship with, it is domestic violence. By statute this cannot be sealed.
