My case summary shows that my case is complete, last instrument filed is misdemeanor information and that the defendant status is disposed. I am trying to get clarity on what all this means. i am pursuing a job in education in DC and would like to know if this charge will appear on my background check. I currently work in education and Missouri and have yet to have any issues. But with DC not being a state, I am not certain how it will appear or if it will appear.
It will appear on your background check there just as it does anywhere. We don't know HOW it was disposed, so we can't tell you anything else.
Chances are it will appear as it has previously appeared on background checks
Of course it will appear. Disposed just means that the case is over. It could mean that the person was sent to jail; that the person received probation or deferred adjudication probation and finished (or got revoked and was sent to jail); etc. If you were arrested and you were prosecuted, they will see what kind of case and what happened with it.
