I had a ridiculous charge levied against me unfairly. I decided to do ARD where the record will ultimately get expunged. I have an ultra clean record prior to this incident. Although my community service for ARD is done, the official expungement will take some time. I'm on the verge of a new job offer. I need to sign a background check form. Only question states 'have you ever been convicted of a crime'. The answer is 'no' and after expungement there will be no conviction. But I'm still in midst of ARD. Should I volunteer my circumstance up front to the employer. I am a victim of horrid circumstances. Also I am in the midst of a expensive divorce. My credit after years of being excellent has taken a huge nose dive due to expenses of litigation. Should I divulge up front?
