My question involves a background check in the State of: Virginia. I am 29 and have one more year in the criminal justice program in college. When I was 15 I was adjudicated a delinquint in N.C for felony burning of a structure. I am not sure if the charge was reduced or not. I went through deferred prosecution and completed one year of probation. I am curious as to if I need to have this expunged before any police department will consider hiring me or just be honest and tell the truth when they see it on a background check.I do not intend to lie about this, I just need to know how big of a deal this will be, and will it preclude all hope of a career in law enforcement. I have never been in trouble since.
