    Answered . California DOJ has the ability to view convictions from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. territories and I believe Canada. This is because DOJ has access to the FBI database.

    Answered . All state and federal convictions will be shown on your Dept of Justice Live Scan (CA) and on your NCIC (FBI) record. But why guess about what is there? Order your own copy. Fast cheap reliable. Use Google for a list of outlets all over the State of CA to get this done.

    Answered . Depending on the agency and the background check they do is the most conservative answer I can give. However, if I was a betting man, I would bet it does in a majority of cases.
