I was arrested on Long Island, NY in 2002 for a DUI (NYSVTL 1192.2). Several months ago, I had to have an FBI report done. In doing so, I learned that the charge was on my record. I contacted the appropriate court in NY, and was told that the charge was plead down to a traffic infraction. I ordered a Letter of Disposition and sent it to the FBI in order to update my record. The FBI wrote back, informing me that my record was now modified. I just got refingerprinted yesterday and am awaiting an unofficial copy of my FBI report. I just don't know if I need to answer "YES" to the question: Have you ever been convincted of a crime? I know NYSVTL 1192.2 is a misdemeanor & a traffic infraction is not a crime. However, do I need to acknowledge what I was originally arrested for? Please advise!!Many, many thanks for those of you who have answered. The FBI report is for certification as an educator in the state of Pennsylvania; that is why they ask for it.
