My question involves criminal records for the state of: New York
If somebody accepts an ACD in the State of New York:
-Will there be ANY record of it on a background check in, say, five years?
Everything I am reading says the whole case will be dismissed and sealed, but what would officially show up on my record, for the rest of my life?
-Is this THE SAME as "deferred adjudication" or "pre-trial diversion"?
After doing some surely amateur-ish research, I don't believe it is because with an ACD I never would plea guilty to the situation.
