I recently had a FBI background check ran on me for personal review. I had an arrest record shown from 1/11/2005 for 1. Assault & Battery 2. Destruction of property, monument. ( Newport News, VA) I know that I was not found guilty for the assault & battery, but the other charge was not as cut and dry. I cannot remember how the judge dealt with it; I was to do community service and pay restitution, that I do remember.
To get more information, I sent off a SP-167 form to get more information about the case. I just received the paper back with a check mark on "No conviction- Does not preclude the existence of an arrest record". I did not find this helpful, which is leading to me reaching out for clarification.
The bottom line is that I need to apply for a state license for my field of work within the next 4 months. I wanted to see what I can do so this does not hinder me.
No conviction means you were not found guilty of any offense but no conviction record does not mean there is no arrest record. The only way to eliminate that you were arrested for a particular offense is to expunge that record if it’s possible. Example: arrested for domestic assault, completed first offender program and charge dismissed. No conviction trcotf in this situation but the arrest will remain on an arrest record since the arrest in this case is not expungeable.
You might personally go to the Newport News Court and get a copy of the records. If not in juvenile court than some information is available online.
