I have affray (fighting in public) on my arrest record and beside it, it says dismissed by District Attorney. I have only had one position denied to me because of it. I still have to explain it even though the charges where dropped by the District Attorney. Depending on the state you live in you can ask the courts to have this expunged from your records only if you have never commited this offense again and its once a lifetime. Im from NC and they allow you that there. Good luck in ur job search

I have have misdemeanor without convictions and I work at a facility and I have been here for a good while. I have also worked in other facilities and home care and so forth. I believe it all depends on the person that is doing the hiring. Some people understand that people are not perfect and the make mistakes some get in trouble and some don't. I just thank God for those who he works through to allow people like me a chance out here in this world.
