In 2010 I was charged with misdemeanor battery. It was subsequently reduced to the same level as a parking ticket. Note I was not arrested or fingerprinted. I was issued a misdemeanor citation. My ? is, will this incident be available to an FBI fingerprint background check. On my ceiling documents that my lawyer forwarded me it states that that the Neveda Criminal Justice information system indicate that the state of Nevada and the FBI have Complied with the Court order, and also the charge is not maintained within the criminal history Repository and or the FBI.
After my record is sealed in Nevada will the charge come up on my FBI fingerprint background check ?
The reason I am asking this question is I have a interview with a potential private employer.
Always disclose when in doubt. There are too many unknowns in your question - reduced how? The way you've worded it suggests there is a record of conviction, and a fine paid.
Always disclose and explain, as it is far better than the alternative of not disclosing and being discovered. Many employers like to hear stories of how their employees learned from their mistakes and grew from their experiences. Share your experience, and turn it into an asset.
Probably not. At the conclusion of this process which incidentally takes forever regardless of the diligence of your lawyer. The Judge will sign 11 or so different orders directing various agencies to seal the record. One will go the FBI. The hope is that the FBI follows the order. In my experience they usually do. You should also get a copy of the order to seal your record so that you may provide it to those who are not in compliance should you run into them.
