I got arrested and give a deferred of entry. After I completed all the terms the charge was dismissed. On the minute order of the court it said "defendant's motion to withdraw guilty plea is granted and case dismissed for lack of prosecution." Now here is the question on the application for California medical license:
Have you ever been convicted of or plea guilty to any to any offense in any state of the U.S or foreign country?
Matters in which you were diverted, deferred, pardoned or if the conviction was later expunged MUST be included. If in doubt as in whether a conviction should be disclosed, it is better to disclose the conviction on the application.
I also have a relevant link http://www.medbd.ca.gov/convictions.html
Do I have to say yes to this question? It seems to me the question only ask for conviction which I was not convicted of anything.
