Do I have to divulge stuff that isn't on my record?
posted by anonymous to law & government (9 answers total)
A year ago I got a disorderly conduct charge. It is supposed to drop off my record after a year.
I am about to look for apartments and of course, they ask if about your criminal record.
If this charge is off my record....does it not show up in a background check? I am kinda torn about it, on the one hand I don't want to lie on the application, on the other hand, what is the point of it not being on my record if I have to divulge it?
Has anyone had a similar experience? What would you do in this situation?
