Hi, Could someone please inform me about what happens when a crime is expunged in California? I am aware that it does not "purge" your record, but rather changes the charge from guilty to not guilty. I know when it comes to government jobs, state licensing, and the lottery, everything will be disclosed on a criminal background check, expunged or not.
My question is, what will show up on a criminal background check for employers that are not applying for the types of jobs I just stated? (Will it show the original charges and that they were dropped? Will it show reduction from Felony to Misdemeanor?)
I was charged with 4 felonies, but 3 were dismissed and 1 I plead nolo contendere, will a background check show the 3 dismissed?
Once expunged, are ANY of the crimes public record anymore?Also, does applying for a teaching position or coaching position at a high school count for any of the 3 types of job where you HAVE to disclose EVERYTHING, expunged or not? Or will that not show up on a background check since school aren't government employed? Thank you for all of your time.
