I got caught buying marijuana from someone and got pulled over by an undercover officer took the marijuana took my info ( l.d) I had no priors before this he gave me a ticket I had to go to court 2 months later the lawyer abs judge granted me an acd to stay out of trouble for 1 year. My question I'm trying to get a job in the airport will this acd show up in my background check or for any future job employment?
Yes, the ACD will show up for the 1 year period. I have had good success asking Judges to seal it right away if there is a good reason. Hire a criminal defense lawyer to make a sealing application for you.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 19 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Did the year pass yet? If not then it is not sealed and still an open case meaning it will show up. You might want to look into hiring an attorney to try and get it sealed early.
Before the year on the ACD this will show up on a background check... after the year it should be dismissed and sealed and as a result should no longer show up. However, that being said it really also depends what service a company uses for a background check. I have seen some companies turn up sealed information which they should not turn over to anyone, but they still do...
overall, the answer is you should be fine most of the time after the year but before the year YES it will show up on any normal background check
