    Even though his record is sealed, BIs have ways to access them. It might reflect on your friend's judgement ability, demeanor and personal comportment.

    Tell him/her to be honest with the BI and be certain to document the incident along with the disposition of the case.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

      Tell your 'friend' that this doesn't sound like an auto-dq, but it really depends on the circumstances of the fight. Best case scenario, your 'friend' will have to put a little more time between the incident and getting hired.

      Also, your 'friend' needs to be completely honest about it. There's no such thing as sealed or expunged in a background investigation.

      Good luck to you...er....I mean to your friend.

        Please let me emphasize once more, that in a LE background investigation there is no such thing as an expungement, or sealing of a record. It can, and will be accessed by the Background Investigator. Your friend should apply. He should fully disclose the arrest. Whether or not he is suitable for employment will be determined by the agency in question.

          Usually backgrounds for Federal positions are investigated by the office of personell managments investigative division (that's who did mine), but I have seen some backgrounds being performed by contract employees. Not sure how that works...The only thing that I can say about your friends incident that i noticed is that it was two years ago. That is relatively recent. The whole, I was young and stupid and made a bad decision rap won't work very well cause it was only two years ago.

              It's two terms that mean essentially the same thing. The procedures are different in different states. The net effect is that the record can't be used against you in any future proceeding. Anyone that truly believes that a sealed or expunged record ceases to exist is drinking their own bathwater. There is always some part of the record that gets forgotten about, and you can't seal the memories of the people that were involved in the case.

                Usually, the kinds of arrest records that are going to be automatic DQ's are those involving integrity issues, drugs, or violent or sexual assaults. That doesn't leave much uncovered, but simple assault, especially an arrest without a conviction, absent other aggravating circumstances, is probably not going to be a DQ.

                Emphasis on the word "probably".

                Lying about it, however, and having it found out, will be a DQ for sure.
