I was in the military in Virginia and now live in Texas. While in Virginia in 2007 I was found guilty for DUI. I paid the fine and did the military equivelent to a state alcohol abuse program(ASAP) but the Virginia Beach court has no proof of me attending ASAP classes. I had no knowledge of this until recently. In 09/2008 a capias was filed for my failure to appear. Hearing information was 09/2011 and says result: finalized and final disposition: fugitive file. I called the county clerk and she said the capias is now inactive and sounded as if I really didnt need to worry about it. I did a "BeenVerified" check on myself and found it was no longer on my criminal record. Will it show up on a pre-employment background check in Tx? FYI I got my DL renewed in 2012 in Tx w/out issues.
This is a very hard question to answer because it depends on what service is running the background check and what,...
