In 2004 I was taken by the police for a public intoxication. I was 20 years old. I was not fingerprinted and I did not have to stay at the station overnight. I was given a ticket with a date for a court appearance. I went to court and went before a judge. He gave me a fine to pay, had to go to an AA meeting, and I had 3 months probation where I had to pay so much money each month. I have been employed and had a criminal background check done, i have applied for a registered nurse license in two states. I am not sure however if the misdemeaner is still on my record. I no longer live in the state I was convicted in. I am needing to apply for a new nursing license and this state is asking if I have ever been convicted of a misdemeaner not including traffic violations. If i have been i have to have official court records i believe and send them in and report what happened. If i haven't been it will be much easier not to report it. I am unsure if I have anything on my record. It has been 4 years since my PI and I have had no other convictions or arrests before or since then. Is it possible it was exponged from my record??
