I was offered a Deferred Entry Judgment for petty theft in Southern California. As part of the deal, I have to plead guilty, attend a 6 hours class and submit DNA sample. After 90 days and completion of the requirements, the plead will be withdrawn and the case will be dismissed. My question is some of the job application ask "Have you ever plead guilty, no contest or convicted of a crime?" Since the case will be dismissed after the term, I can answer no to conviction but how do I answer to the question if I have pled guilty? I know that I had to plead guilty to qualify for the program but the plead is withdrawn upon completing the program. Also, what will show on my DOJ record? Will I have a conviction or dismissed? Thank you for your kindly answers.Sorry about the lack of information. I'm referring to private employers, not public or government jobs.
