I have a pending charge for petty theft. It's my understanding I can say I have not been convicted nor arrested. However, I'm not clear, if the pending charge means arrest and need to say so if asked.
An application says they want information about your conviction history and not to disclose arrests that have been dismissed. Then asks if you have been convicted, plead guilty, or no contest and explain. Since I am in PTD, I believe I can safely say no to this question. There is no question space to indicate you were arrested.
However, their statement seems tricky when they say not to disclose closed arrests. If pending charges mean arrest I must say since it will show on a check. Also, I read that pending charges can't be held against you since not final, is this true?
