    Default Is Being Cited the Same as Being Arrested

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: oregon
    if i should ever apply for job -is cited the same as arrested?

    i was cited for theft-reduced to violation-dismissed-no intent.

    if i do not expunge-will a dismissed record show up?

    what does dismissed really mean as far as a "record" ?

    thank you very much

    Default Re: Is Being Cited the Same as Being Arrested

    Arrest is a term that can have a number of meanings. Generally speaking, if you're cited without being taken into custody most people would not call that an "arrest", but it is possible for the period of detention to have legally constituted an "arrest". The fact remains, though, that the citation charged you with a crime. You can expect that your criminal history will show that charge and, if your case was ultimately dismissed as you imply, that it was eventually dismissed.
