SHIT THAT WONT SHOW ON YOUR RECORD:
--Pending charges of any kind.
--Completed first-time offender diversion programs (PTI/Conditional Discharge) that you been sentenced to.
--Incomplete diversion programs that you been sentenced to. (Incomplete meaning, you are still in the program/on probation/w.ever , doing good, complying, but did not finish out the term yet.)
--Incomplete diversion programs you been sentenced to (incomplete meaning, you are still only part way thru the term, and fucked it up and got in trouble again, but did not go back to court to get sentenced for violating yet.)
SHIT THAT WILL SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD:
--Anything you been CONVICTED of. (for example, if you got arrested once, completed diversion, and then got arrested again a year later and got convicted, the completed diversion wont show, but your 2nd arrest that resulted in a conviction will.)
--Any diversion program that you fail to complete/comply with, THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SENTENCED FOR VIOLATING. (A successfuly complete diversion will never appear on your record. A failed diversion will get you sent back to court and sentenced as if you were a second time offender, and the charge will appear as a conviction on your record as if you had never attempted the diversion program.)
