I have plead guilty to a felony offense and have not been sentenced yet. I am to be sentenced early next year. If a potential employer run a background check will my felony show since I have not been sentenced yet.
Most job applications will ask if you have any convictions (not yet) or cases pending (you do). You must answer the latter question truthfully. And yes it will show up on a background check.
If you have not been sentenced yet, it will not show up as a conviction. The only thing that will show up is the arrest. You can do a live scan with the Department of Justice to confirm this.
Probably yes. In our current computer age information spreads quickly. The sentence will have nothing to do with the conviction and is irrelevant to your criminal record.
What kind of job are you applying for? Jobs that require state licensing or security clearances typically require that you inform them of any convictions, so even if they are not aware of this before hiring you, when they find out you probably will not be in a good position.
If the run a Live Scan--your booking history will be discovered. If the check the courthouse, they'll see your case. Best to be honest.
