I went to court for a crime of sexual assult (felony) and ended up being put on probation for 2 years. When i complete my probation, everything will be espunged (removed from my record). I have a background check soon for a school and they said that if you have a felony, you wont be accepted. The court case is still open. Will these still appear on my background check?

Based upon the way the Director of State Courts interprets the expungement statute, yes, it will probably still show up. While you are on probation, the conviction stands. Once expunged, it will still probably show up, so the more appropriate question is whether the expunction of the conviction will satisfy the school.
