Licensing Juvenile arrest record


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

I am student, I graduate next month.  I am applying for licensing and am wondering, do I need to disclose a juvenile arrest?  It was over 16 years ago and I was under the impression that those records were sealed.  On a side note, I am licensed by the same state medical board as an MRT and don't recall it ever coming up on the FBI background check.  I'd rather be safe than sorry, but also don't feel the need to share things with the medical board that aren't an issue.

The best answer would be to disclose it, because if you knowingly don't disclose and the board finds out (if it does show on your background check), that could be an automatic loss of license.  The application may even specifically state you need to disclose sealed/expunged records.

Discuss this with an employment attorney. It will be worth the $$ and give you peace of mind.
