    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Nobody can answer your question because we would have no idea what database they are accessing. The arrest will show up in the NCIC database. You may qualify for pre-trial diversion which will avoid a conviction. Contact the Prosecutor's office first. If they say no, hire a criminal defense attorney.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I agree. What shows up depends on which records are searched. Right now you have a pending case, for which you have been charged and arrested. You have not been convicted. Pay attention to what your applications ask. If you have a clean record, you may be able to avoid a conviction. If the prosecutor is not willing to talk to you, which is a common occurrence, contact a local attorney to help you with this. Good luck.
