Getting licensed with a criminal record
I was charged with 3 felonies . All dismissed for a disorderly conduct misdemeanor. Non violent, non drug related. Disorderly was set aside at sentencing. Sentence was nothing.
How much do I need to explain ? I need to disclose the disorderly conviction but they want an explanation of the plea. Need assistance on wording etc..

This is an administrative law question, not DUI defense.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
I am not sure what licensing (law, medical, contractors etc) you are applying for, but it is always best to be exact and succinct. Hold nothing back. I recommend using the wording directly from the plea agreement and the Court's Minute Entry Order from sentencing. Refer to and copy from both documents in your explanation. This will lend the strength of wording and needed credibility to your own explanation.
