    Answered . Disorderdly Conduct is not a crime in New York: it is a violation and seals upon completion of the sentence so it should not show up except if you apply to be a police officer or for a gun licence.

    Answered . Sort answer is it depends, it depends on the company running the background check. It is not a crime, however, and as a result you're technically not legally supposed to be prejudiced by that conviction... However, if it does pop up on a background check there will always be questions one has to answer..,

    My best advice would be to go to your local police headquarters, here in NYC it would be one police plaza, and get a good citizens search done... For about $60 they run your criminal record and provide you with a print out.., You will then see exactly what would pop up on the best background search around, and adjust and plan accordingly. Good luck!

    Answered . It may, especially if you've waived sealing of the charge. The government will always be able to see the details regardless.
