How long does a Live Scan usually take? I took mine Thursday afternoon. The FBI portion came back the same day, but the state portion is still in progress! I was arrested for Domestic Violence but the charges were dropped. I didn't recieve a conviction, NO community service, NO classes, or fine. I applied for the school district, in got the job but just waiting for the Scan. Im getting so anxious. Anyone have a similar issue, how long did your, scan take? Do they scan throughout the weekend?
