How Long Do Charges Stay on Your Criminal Record?

Answer

Dismissed charges show up on your criminal record as dismissed. They aren't automatically expunged. If you've had a charge dismissed and a potential employer asks whether you've ever been charged with a crime, you have to say 'yes,' but if he asks whether you've been convicted, you can say 'no.'
