What will show up on my background check?

Asked over 1 year ago - Cupertino, CA

I was arrested for 'criminal trespass' and have this as a misdemeanor on my record (I believe). I want to know what exactly will show up on a criminal background check by a potential employer-- ex. will it state what happened, or simply the conviction; will it state the date?

Thank you!
