Background check, will my felony show up?

background check

Question: Will my felony involving conspiracy show up in a background check after I had it expunged? I just got my felony arrest record expunged. I was not convicted. Charges were dropped. Will this show up in a background check? I moved to another state. I want to try applying for government jobs such as school board corrections, things like that.

Answer: Generally speaking, a record expungement means no, it should not be accessible in a background check. However, a company may still see that you were arrested for a crime depending on the type of background check performed.
