Dec 30, 2022, Criminal Record FAQ: Arrested but not Convicted?

Question: What does your criminal record look like if you have been arrested, meaning fingerprinted and either administratively or literally booked for an offense but not convicted, either it got dismissed or did not get charged. Answer: Your FBI record is still going to reflect the case information as well as the arrest data. The file in the video is from Google Images, because I’m not even showing my client’s redacted stuff.

But essentially, an arrest will still come back on the FBI file with the arresting data, the agency, and the change. Then it will have court data, maybe it will say dismissed on date. In order to remove that information from your FBI file, I work with clients in Washington State to expunge their arrest record, which removes the record from the Washington State Patrol non-conviction database as well as the FBI database, so that when an FBI report is run, it says your date of birth and name and says that there is no information for you.

So, that is the process to get your FBI record cleaned up if you have an arrest on your record. People do this for immigration, travel, employment, security clearances. My office helps people with this in Washington State only.
