Re: Will This Be on My Record Even if Dismissed
As a note, most attorneys I know have no idea what is or is not included in one's CORI. I never went to law school, yet I provide instruction in this to those that have. Police officers might have a better idea of what goes into a CORI than most attorneys because the cops actually use the information. Going to law school does NOT tell you how criminal records are maintained. The best way to know is to either be properly trained in NCIC and the relevant state and local systems and laws, or to work around them long enough to have a working knowledge of what one finds in them.
Also, what defines a criminal record can vary. While the OP might not have a state criminal offender record for a "violation," a local record might exist. So, when one asks about their criminal history, it helps to be a little more detailed as to what kind of history, or for what purpose.
