I'm applying for a Federal Job, which will require a Full 10 - 20 year Background Check. I was arrested 4 years ago for Misdemeanor Charge, which was latter Nolle Prossed. Would the charge show up on my Background Check as being convected or dismissed? And when applying for a job do I have to disclose this offenses?

Re: Backgroup Info
First, this offense will show up on a backround check. It will probably appear as an arrest and then a dismissal or nolle pros. Second, you should absolutely be truthful on this application. They will see this in the backround check so you need to be honest. You do not want to lose an opportunity simply because you failed to be truthful on the application. If this is your only criminal esisode, then you can explain that you have been arrested but were never "convicted" of a crime. Just be sure to be honest. If you have any further questions in regards to this matter, feel free to contact my office.

Yes the arrest and np will show. If they ask for arrests you must disclose it. I would try and expunge it. Pls call if interested.
