Pursuant to CPL 160.50, the record will be sealed and the arrest and prosecution is deemed a nullity. You should not have any issues or suffer any prejudice as a result of a case that was dismissed and sealed.
Best of Luck,
Congratulations! You have a clean record. The case against you has been dismissed and sealed. You have not been convicted of anything. When asked if you have been convicted of a crime on school and job applications, please check the "NO" box. (It should be noted that you were not charged with a crime anyway; you were charged with a violation, which is a non-criminal infraction- like running a stop sign.)
Best of luck with you gun license- Just remember that a license is not a carry permit in NYC.
