Asked over 3 years ago - New York, NY

Will the arrest or court proceedings that originally began with a misdemeanor and were reduced to one count of Disorderly Conduct be reflected in the major private database collections?

    Answered . Private data bases could have that information, however, remember, it's still just a violation and not a crime,so don't fear it. Do the right thing and it will eventually fade into the past.

    Answered . As Mr. Robinson points out, it can be difficult to unring a bell in today's information age. However, a dis con in NY is considered a "favorable disposition", similar to an ACD or dismissal. I've never had a client denied employment because of a disorderly conduct.
