My question involves a background check in the State of: GEORGIA
Over a year ago I turned myself in for simple assault (turned myself in bc the person pressed charges as I was at my mothers funeral & they were trying to cover themselves from being charged with child abuse), The entire court case was up to 6months for a trial once we got to court, I found out I had 2 more charges simple battery and cruelty to children in the 3rd degree which is a charge that the child was in the same room with the argument/fight happened ( my son was at his dad's house, his girlfriend hit my infant repeatedly,so when I picked him up and saw him we had a fight) I was found not guilty on all 3 charges for self defense beyond a reasonable doubt & because I was protecting my son.
I work in the health care field, I went for an interview with a recruiter, I told her of my background check that it said not guilty and acquittal I even showed her a copy. She sent me to an interview with a dept manager, he sent a job offer back to the recruiter. She was to contact me 3-5 days after she received my background check, but I had to contact her a week later. She says she will submit my background check to her manager and see if he will approve it even though there are no convictions.If I have no convictions and it states it on my background check will I still be considered for this position or no? Under Georgia law and my county says I can not have it expunged(Ive tried twice) because it went to trial, which is something else I don't understand if I was not guilty why is it staying on my record?
