In 2005 I was convicted of misdemeanor theft. I recently contacted my attorney from the case about expungement. He went to the district attorney that tried the case to see if he would be against it & he contacted me today with 2 options.
1- The DA agreed to my attorney filing for the misdemeanor to be dropped to a petty misdemeanor. My attorney says that this would make it technically not a crime, it would be the same as a traffic ticket & I would not have to report it on a job application when asked if I have been convicted of a crime. 2- Go to court and try and get the record expunged.
My Questions is
1- if I go w/ option 1 will the petty misdemeanor show up on the average background checks done by employers?
2 - to be continued in next post2 - if I continue to have job offers rescinded because the petty misdemeanor shows up in my background checks could I apply to have the petty misdemeanor expunged?
