I was given ARD in September 2013 and completed everything in March 2014. The incident has been expunged on the state police criminal history and I can no longer find it on the county dockets (not showing at all - not even closed). We were recently purchased by another company and they want to take fingerprints. All of the documents that I completed asked if I was Convicted, which I answered NO. I am just concerned that this will show up on the FBI check and there could be issues with the new employer.
If you completed all of the requirements of the ARD program and the matter was properly expunged, you would not have a...

were prescribed and taken as prescribed due to chronic illness. Attorney did not show up at arraignment. To date, he has not filed entry of appearance. Status conference was continued for 2 more months, but I was not informed about continuance until I was already in attendance at court. Again, the attorney was nowhere in sight. I know very little about my case and have had no subsequent meetings with attorney since initial meeting in April. What information I have gotten regarding the DUI procedure has come from reading this site. My questions: What is my recourse if a retained attorney is not keeping me informed? How do I know that he is actively negotiating on my behalf or even working on my case at all? Doesn't he have a duty to keep me informed?
He does need to keep you informed but you also have a duty to keep up with your OWN case. You should contact the...
