  • 16yr old $500 felony theft charge shows dismissed when I look it up online

    Texas:

    Hi,

    I wanted to know if I got charged back in 1997 and completed the terms of my probation and was told at the end of me completing those terms I could legally answer no when asked on an application if I had ever been convicted of a felony, does that same rule apply if I have to be fingerprinted for a job? I recently applied for a job and have to be fingerprinted in order to get licensed to do the job, the employer knows about my charge but told me to find out if when I do a public records search in the dallas county database and pull up my case, in the area where it has the disposition codes it shows DISM, can I legally say I haven't been convicted of a felony? I also wanted to know if I haven't been charged with any other crime since then, do I qualify to file a non-disclosure or to have it expunged from my record? Thanks for any help you can give.

    Your best course of action is to contact the court directly to verify.
    Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

    I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

    Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.
