I was considering applying to my local sheriffs office and was wondering,is having an arrest record an automatic way to be disqualified as an applicant?
I ask as I was arrested for two felonies,however the state didn't file any criminal charges against me. I was and am innocent I did not commit this crime.
Also I'm in the process of having my record expunged,although I will divulge my arrest on my application as is required. Is the fact that no criminal charges were filed against me and that my record is being expunged going to help me at all?
