Yes, unless you have the conviction expunged; however, the arrest record remains forever.

It is when you get the conviction of it. Remember they changed the law so they all count now, if you're from Michigan.

Yes, there are a few trucking companies who are willing to give second chances, and whose insurance will allow them to hire you as long as the DUI/DWI conviction is at LEAST 3 years old from the date of CONVICTION, not arrest.

Criminal arrests and convictions are a permanent part of your criminal record. An arrest or conviction can be expunged or sealed under certain exceptional conditions. It is not often done. The process varies from one state to another, and involves making a petition to the court that presided over the original arrest and/or conviction. The court will usually consider the circumstances of the original arrest, and the conduct of the person arrested since then. Generally, a substantial amount of time has to have passed since the original arrest, and the arrestee must have been a model citizen since. Sealing or expungement of a conviction does not allow you to omit this information from many background investigation processes. A pardon of a previous conviction eliminates the consequences of the conviction, such as restoration of civil rights, but does not remove the conviction from your record.

arrest - preliminary hearing - indictment - pre-trial hearing(s) - trial - sentencing.

No. Georgia only allows expungements to remove arrest records, in the event that there was no conviction. Georgia has a pardon procedure available post conviction. It does not remove the conviction from your record.

it depends on what you did. Lets say you do it again when you do have custody will it affect the life of your child? *** In short yes. A ruling judge will reivew past criminal convictions to determin the chance of additional disruptions in the ability to provide care to the child. The court will ask questions like: Does the conviction impact your ability to gain employment or housing? Does your conviction threaten the safety of the child? However, the impact of a past conviction may not be that great if it will not affect your ability to care for the child.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows inclusion of 'records of arrest' and 'convictions'. However, for most credit report products used today, this information is neither seen nor used.

The short answer is forever.There are ways of "removing"an arrest or conviction however.You can apply for "expungement" of an arrest or conviction if you meet certain criteria.My suggestion is to research the laws and exceptions in your juristiction. Be advised that I am not a lawyer and the answers provided do not reflect case law or laws.

You can't get the arrest removed because it actually happened. However, a conviction will not show up on your record because you weren't convicted.

User Avatar

Yes. Once a person is arrested - that arrest is documented. Therefore a record is created - even if the person is later released without charge.

It depends on whether the arrest is for something the policy covers. Criminal acts are routinely excluded. Check with your insurance agent for coverage in your specific case.

You would have to petition the court with a request to seal the record, giving good reason why it should be granted. Sealing the case file will not remove the record of your arrest and conviction.

maybe if you use your car to travel, and then the insurance is cancelled they arrest the owner of the car.......

Depends on what you were convicted of incidental to the arrest (an arrest is not the same as a conviction, in which case you would have pled guilty or no contest, or been found guilty, in a court of law).

User Avatar

Need more specific info to be able to answer the question. What do you mean "without a conviction?" Were you found not guilty? Was the case dropped? Has the case never gone to court? What?

A person can receive a pardon from the Governor and his right will be reinstated. But a police check will always show the arrest and conviction.

User Avatar

no it wont you have to have a judgment of conviction first in order for it to show up on a backrounf check

No . On the application for police academy it say's "have you ever been arrested? If yes , what were the charges?" A felony arrest is almost the same as conviction as far as employment goes .I have to disagree. An arrest is NOT a conviction, or close to it. Employers, including the police department, are limited in what they can consider in emplyment screening.Another View: While the contributor of the 2nd answer is technically correct, the chances that someone with a felony arrest record will be hired as a law enforcement officer is extremely slim. Public safety agencies have WIDE latitude in employment and hiring standards. Basically because at some time in the future some defense attorney will use the existence of this record to to impeach them on the stand and crucify him in front of a jury.Depends on if you plead guilty or were convicted. A conviction is an auto DQ. And they count pleading guilty as a conviction regardless of if you took a plea deal to a lesser charge, or a diversion program that explicitly states that you are NOT convicted of the charge and it expunged or sealed the record or arrest. As stated on probably all agencies websites/applications.

There are several things that must be proven in order to charge someone with resisting arrest. The police must prove that a person intentionally resisted arrest, the person acted violently, and the law enforcement officer was correctly performing his duties.

Court records are public records in the United States. Whether or not an employer will check those records is another story. An employer can find out about a conviction. Whether or not an employer will find out about a conviction is a different issue. The fact that following your conviction you were held under house arrest is irrelevant. The nature of the punishment is irrelevant. The fact that you were convicted is the relevant issue. Was there a deal made that would get the conviction removed from your record? Was that part of any agreement? It is illegal for an employer to fire you in the United States because you were arrested. It is legal for an employer to fire you in the United States because you were convicted. Is the conviction on your record?
