My question involves a background check in the State of: New York
I received a disorderly conduct ticket in Brooklyn for riding my bike on the sidewalk and not showing the officer ID in August. The judge gave me an ACD that will be sealed in February. The only problem is that I'm an unemployed high school teacher who came to New York in July to find work!
When applying for my New York State teaching license, it asks "Have you ever been found guilty after trial, or pleaded guilty, no contest, nolo contendere, or had adjudication withheld to a crime (felony or misdemeanor) in any court?" Do I have to answer "YES"? What if I wait until February?
