I'm undergoing a pre - employment background check for a federal agency . I was convicted of a DUI , appealed the decision and later found not guilty under a jury trial . The background check form states : " . . . your answers should include convictions resulting from a plea of bolo contender ( no contest ) , but omit . . . any conviction set aside under the Federal Youth Corrections Act or similar state law , and ( 5 ) any conviction for which the record was expunged under Federal or state law . During the last 7 years , have you been convicted , been imprisoned , been on probation , or been on parole ? " My record has not been expunged or set aside . Obviously , I would prefer not to list the offense but wish to remain truthful since I was in fact * initially * convicted . Thank you for your answers !
