I'm in the process of sealing my record and was wondering if a juvenile adjudication will show on a background check. From what I've heard, an adjudication is not the same as a conviction. Therefore, do I have to disclose my juvenile matter to employers? My case was handled in a juvenile court and it was a misdemeanor, not a felony. I'm hoping to become a CPA and I wanted to know if this will affect me in getting a job in the future. I've been hearing a lot of different stories so I want to confirm the details.I also did a record review (live scan) for myself and it showed my juvenile case. Should this be cleared once the judge grants the petition to seal my record? This is what I've been told: When your California records are declared "sealed and destroyed", the arresting law enforcement agency, Department of Justice, and any local, state, or federal law enforcement agency to which they have released records must destroy the arrest records, and destroy the request to destroy those records.
