My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
3 years ago I was arrested for shoplifting, the amount was $650 so I was charged with Grand theft 3rd degree/felony. I was put on the Pretrial Intervention Program which has been completed, paid all my fines and everything. I don't have any other arrests or even speeding tickets, just a very stupid mistake. Currently when I pull up my records through public court records my plea shows as NOT GUILTY and the disposition shows as ADMINISTRATIVELY NOLLE PROSSED which I know it means the state its not longer prosecuting me or they dropped the charges/dismissed and it shows as CLOSED. I am still trying to understand all of those terms. I already submitted my application for an expungement and the state attorney approved so I'm currently waiting for the state response if that make sense.
My concern is that I am trying now to apply for the Loan Originator license and they have a criminal disclosure where you disclose if you ever been convicted of or pled guilty or nolo contendere to a felony which I'm very confused. I have to do a background check which they will see my arrest and not sure what other info they can see. I was never convicted but the charge was a felony. I don't know if the outcome of my case above even matters. I want to know if anyone has been in a situation like this to provide me with some insight or if you know someone that has.
Thank you for your help!
