My question involves a background check in the State of:Illinois
Almost two years ago I plead guilty to resisting a police officer. Because the officer sustained an injury, the charge was a class 4 felony. Since then I have received my bachelors and was employed at a white collar firm. I have since left that company in search of something better. It has now been three months since I left and I have had a few interviews in which I disclosed the felony. Two companies have said that nothing showed up on their search and nothing showed up on a search I conducted with publicdata.com.
Is it possible the felony does not show up because it was a guilty plea rather than a conviction?
Can I vacate my guilty plea? (expungement or sealment not an option in IL)
I am extremely worried that I will not be able to find another decent job even though I have a bachelors in international business and speak 3 languages. Iv been looking for 3 months now and I know that my felony cost me atleast one job because they told me so.
Thanks in advance
