I mean I'm not convicted of the crime. But during the 1yr if i apply for work, will it say charge with misdemeanor resulted in DC? Because I didnot know I had to wait a yr.
I was under the impression that I had to stay out of trouble for a yr. and my criminal record would remain blank. But since it's not sealed... Does that mean I currently have a criminal record? Meaning in a BG check it will list the charge?
You don't have a criminal record because you did not plead guilty to a crime. However, if you received a conditional discharge as part of the sentence, during the one year, a background check will likely show the original charge and the plea to disorderly conduct.

Your confusion lies in your use of "criminal record" terminology. A criminal record is only when you have been convicted of a crime. Dis Con is a violation and not a crime, so you have NO criminal record.
