Im going to graduate in 3 weeks andapplied for licensure in Indiana. I had a few arrests previously in Indiana and got them all dismissed. They are not showing up on my background check. There was one arrest I forgot about from when I was living in Florida. I was arrested for battery in 2013 that ended up as Nolle Prossed. I was able to convince the state attorney I was innocent of any wrong doing. I was advised it would be dismissed since charges were not pressed because of the new law. The board contacted me and said I was failing the FBI side of the fingerprint. They said I need to submit a statement and court documentation. I did this last week. I asked for an update and she said she had to send it to the compliance director to review it. She stressed that I should have submitted the paperwork requested and she doesn’t know if my statement will be enough. I did submit it as it was attached to the statement. I haven’t heard anything back.
I’m stressed out! Will I get denied because of a charge from 7 years ago that was dropped by prosecutors? I’m not sure what is taking so long.
