I have a very important job interview next Friday. And apparently we are supposed to pass a criminal record check, I was arrested a few months ago for causing disruption while being high on LSD and certain other substances. Will this show up on my record? If so is this ground for failing the check? :unsure:

Good luck, mate. You'll need it.

An arrest will almost certainly show up on your check. Where were you arrested, and where are you trying to get a job?

Were you convicted? Paid a fine? If not, were you able to have your arrest expunged? These are important questions.

I don't know if I was convicted or not. I did not pay a fine. The cops just held a bunch of us overnight and let us go in the morning. As for 'expunging' no it's not. I hadn't even thought about the arrest until this one job said that they're gonna do a criminal record check. This is very unfair, fucking pigs arresting people over small things and causing us to lose potential jobs :(

I did nothing. We were walking home and one of my friends sat down on the sidewalk and started crying & yelling for like 5-10 mins because she thought that this one guy who was with us was possessed by the devil and his soul was on top of her, eating her flesh. The neighbours called the police who took everyone to the station despite the fact only one person was causing the disruption and even it was not too loud. Even the sober person was arrested which shows the cops were just being dicks.

I do feel sorry for you because I know what it's like to go out with friends who can't handle their shit. Personally I would never fuck with LSD because hallucinating isn't my thing. Still, there is always a chance that something like this might happen if you ever go out intoxicated in public. That's why it's best to stay your ass at home.

You took the risk, and it screwed you over to the point where you will have to disclaim this information anytime you want a good job in the near future. Oh well. :shrug:

Here is the good news. I spend 98000 hours a day interviewing people for background investigations for the US government </dream job> </sarcasm> and (A) every day I hear about MUCH MUCH WORSE, and (B) more often than not, these people obtain or maintain their public trust or national security positions. So, especially if this is a public sector job, you probably will still get it, if it comes up, as long as you are honest about the incident on record, and properly chagrined. This will mean you will have to probably lie and say you're not going to do it anymore, even though you sound like a drug addict to me. :speakles:

Police perpetually abuse disturbing the peace type laws for their own purposes. People regularly take them to court for it and win, because the law itself is enforced so selectively.

I did a piece for a online magazine about police harassing young adults. If anything's criminal, it's their behavior.

Indeed. I spent months interviewing ACLU lawyers about the issue. It's a huge problem, especially for minority males (like myself) in inner cities.

I also have first hand experience. In my final two years of high school, I was harrassed weekly by the police. I was stopped and frisked at least a dozen times, had my ID/metrocard taken, etc. All for looking and dressing a certain way. Of course, that's just anecdotal. But anecdotal evidence trumps actual statistics, right, meyerpl?

It's not fair.I actually have taken illegal drugs, caused disruptions, gotten arrested and gone to jail on more than one occasion. What I didn't do was blame "the fucking pigs" for the problems I caused for myself. I eventually grew up and changed my behavior........for the most part. Fortunately, when I was being an asshole the police gave me a few breaks and didn't break my balls as hard as they could, which it sounds like they did for you if you were detained for a few hours, cut loose and never went in front of a judge. Maybe you should send those cops flowers with a thank you card instead of calling them names. They may have saved your future job aspirations because it sounds like the cops opted not to make a criminal arrest. The police have discretion with many relatively minor crimes like shoplifting, disorderly conduct, possession of drug paraphernalia, etc. to either handle it as a criminal matter or a civil matter. You'd be wise to find out if you were cited (ticketed) with the option of either paying a fine or appearing in court; if you do neither a bench warrant will be issued and you'll eventually go back to jail.

Good luck with the job opportunity. You may be alright with the backround check.

:lol: You're something else dude. Getting arrested while on LSD shouldn't ruin your chances at getting a job? I might agree with you if you weren't in such denial about accepting responsibility for your actions. Clearly based on your thread about failing school because of cocaine, and now this one, you have bigger things to worry about than getting lectured on a message board. So my advice would be to quit doing those drugs "recreationally". And then pray.

I for one am rather suspicious of the OP's story here. You mean to tell me that someone wouldn't even know when released (presumably down from the drug induced "high") whether they had been charged with a crime or not? Gimme a fucking break.

Even a traffic ticket comes with a court date or instructions on how to get one if one wishes to plead innocent. And the part where the OP refers to the cops as "fucking pigs" despite admitting to using LSD (and later ITT also to using PCP aka angel dust) sounds like a great big troll to me, looking 2C how many ppl here buy the story.

I guess...I just get the results and then have to call people out if they try to hide things :shrug:

All I know is I get to see every arrest prior to the interview, regardless of conviction. Obviously one would think the federal government would do the most thorough law checks, so depending upon which service a company's HR department uses, it probably could vary. If the OP paid a fine, though, that's a tacit guilty verdict for the charge, correct? I am not a lawyer.

The question is whether he'd been arrested. And, as much as people might find this hard to believe, I've run into a substantial number of cases where people have paid fines/been taken into custody/been handcuffed and they still don't know if they've been charged or arrested. A lot of that has to do with them being stupid, of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of that also has to do with cops not using proper procedure when they charge people with crimes.

Doing LSD is like gambling you never know how your body is gonna react, it doesn't matter ifyou do it once in a while or just once in your life, you just never know how are you gonna react. Have your heard the term mind-body dissociation? Anyway, it's your life I guess. :shrug:

Although I dont condone the way you haven't owned up to your own actions I do recommend you still go for the job. I just got a job with an extremely prominent company in the US, actually had my first day today, but I was background checked and drug tested a few weeks ago during the application/interview process. Now I have done my fair amount of drugs in the last few years and there is no way they didn't show up in my test and I still got the job. If you do well enough on the interview I feel like you can actually trump whatever shows up on your criminal record. Maybe I just got lucky, but their checks are not the be all, end all some people think that they are.

Expungement is rare and takes time though. It may be worth fighting for though.The conviction can be expunged from your criminal record but it is extremely rare unless expungement was a condition of probation. The National Crime Information Center database and, in our state, the Crime Information Bureau will still have a record of the arrest regardless of the disposition.

I have literally interviewed people who had come directly from court after pleading guilty to a crime, waiving their right to a trial and being sentenced, who had absolutely no idea what had just occured or what their part had been. In the case of this poster, I don't think we can rule out stupidity.

This is, without a doubt, the stupidest post I've ever read in this forum. And that's saying something.

Truth hurts.

This thread is amazing.

I now see that it is true that drugs impair your judgement.

Although I dont condone the way you haven't owned up to your own actions I do recommend you still go for the job. I just got a job with an extremely prominent company in the US, actually had my first day today, but I was background checked and drug tested a few weeks ago during the application/interview process. Now I have done my fair amount of drugs in the last few years and there is no way they didn't show up in my test and I still got the job. If you do well enough on the interview I feel like you can actually trump whatever shows up on your criminal record. Maybe I just got lucky, but their checks are not the be all, end all some people think that they are.
Um what exactly did your drug test consist of? I doubt they were looking for drugs you were taking in the past years, looked more for if and what you were taking at that time.

With a urine test, most drugs won't show up after 48-72 hours, with marijuana being the exception. Depending on the test, marijuana will not show up after 1-4 weeks.

They took both a urine sample and a piece of hair. The urine would have been enough to determine if anything was in my system at the time, no? I am not completely familiar with the whole process though, so I could be wrong I guess. :shrug:

So now I've contributed seriously good advice, based upon my own experiences, to two troll threads by some asshole.

It's a good thing I'm drunk, otherwise I'd be redonk pissed.

Companies have started now to do criminal record checking because safety and protection is very important and the company is not ready take risks. Businesses, organizations, companies and many others seek this process as this is a way to make sure an employee or individuals are truthful as well as not being a possible security issue or liability.
