I was charged with Falsifying Business Records class A misdemeanor. At arraignment my lawyer said the DA wanted a class B misdemeanor conviction and 5days CS. He said he cannot get the ACD but got the disorderly conduct violation. (CS was reduce to 2 days).
When does this actually get sealed? Is it one yr regardless or immediately? If I apply for work and medical trade school right now, what will my record say exactly?
But I keep reading online even though the record will be sealed... There are cases that it will pop up still for life. I do not understand, if a record is sealed, why will it still be visible? Is that a technicality? How do I check?
But when ask for job, I CAN say I have no criminal record. But for arrest... Do I say yes or no? Are BOTH sealed?Under Conditions of Disposition, their is no restitution requirement. Does that mean I might get a CIVIL Demand Letter? Told no, but I still want to confirm. On Webcrims, it listed Petite Larceny and not Falsifying Business Records as listed on the DAT. The DA and my lawyer had an agreement, so I wasn't read charges, I accepted the D.C. But if the arrest (told to turn myself in) is not sealed. Will it say why I was arrested or just say "Arrested: 1"? I'm worried it will say: "Arrested due to Falsifying Business Records Misdemeanor Charge" or something in that nature. Do I need certificate of disposition, is that necessary? Same after I finish CS as proof of work done? Until it is sealed, will the Misdemeanor matter say pending, even though I'm finishing the CS req. tomorrow? Does that mean the Certificate of disposition will be needed for whatever time frame it takes for record to be sealed? Thanks.
