    I wanted to ask if u do a background check on yourself & only the dismiss charges come up
    An not the conviction do u still bring this up to the board. The background was done threw the
    Louisiana state police, but it's on my arrest report.another thing I have serval arrests report
    All dismiss except the conviction should I give them my list or just tell them what came up on the report.

    If you did ur on background check an the dismiss charges came up & the conviction didn't, do I still report the conviction. The background was through the state & it's on the arrest report but not on rap sheet . I don't want to tell no more than they ask for.

    I would check with your BON to see what they require you to disclose. Some BONs don't want to hear about dismissed charges...but others do. So start by contacting your BON--call, visit, you can contact them anonymously by e-mail if you prefer.

    If after doing that you still have questions about how to answer the questions, then you need to contact a lawyer as we can't give you legal advice here.

    Best of luck.

What will u do?
