Because domestic violence charges were involved (Brady Act consequences) it is very likely that your conviction was routinely reported to the FBI's criminal history data-base. The FBI's current policy is that criminal history data is not removed -- ever. If a state court grants post-conviction relief, such as expungement or a set-aside, that order will be reported along with the original conviction data. It is highly likely that your prospective employer will learn of your prior conviction and you may want to consider a disclosure that frames the issue as favorably as possible for you, rather than wait for the info to be found out by the potential employer through routine background checking.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
