In 2005 I was arrested while living in NY and was later at court given an ACD. I stayed out of trouble these past years and I recently called the Clerk of the Court and verified that my case is in fact sealed.
I've since moved to NJ and am seeking employment (nothing military or Government/Police related) and am confused about what to say if asked if I was ever arrested. I've read conflicting opinions and really need to know some correct info.
-Since my record has been sealed does that also mean that I no longer have an arrest record that's traceable and am free to say that I have never been arrested on an application? Again, I've read that the sealed record after an ACD also includes the arrest being sealed but I also read the opposite.
Thanks for any help.
