This happened about 14 months ago in Tempe, AZ. I spent the night in jail, completed the diversion program a few months after the arrest, and the case was dismissed. I am an Illinois resident and I currently live in Illinois. I was recently accepted into medical school in Philadelphia, and I am concerned this mistake will haunt me through my medical career and possibly even rescind my acceptance because I just submitted to a criminal background check. I checked that I have never been convicted of a crime, but what will show up on the background check? Just my arrest? Will it show my offenses? How long do I have to wait to have the record expunged, and what is the process for expungement? Thanks in advance!
