    Post Public Intoxication

    I was arrested in California for public intoxication a year ago while attend college and went to court. The judge dismissed the case and had me attend several AA meeetings. My first question is wether I can get my arrest record expunged and when? My second question is I am currently finishing up my fire academy training and getting ready to send my applications to various departments. If I get my record expunged can they still pull up that record of the arrest and if it doesn't get expunged will that affect my job hiring since it is a government job? Thank you for your time.

    Someone somewhere will always know about the arrest, even if it is expunged.

    So tell the truth up front on any applications.

    I believe that California provides for the sealing or destruction of arrest records on the basis of factual innocence, pursuant to section 851.8 of the California Penal Code.
