School C&F knows, da office never asked. Was previously fingerprinted for another office's internship background check, no issue.
Offer contingent on background investigation so naturally starting to get paranoid.
EDIT: 420 posts! LoL
What do you mean they never asked? It's been a while but I'm almost positive I was asked if I'd ever been arrested, much less whether a case survived arraignments and ended up in motion practice...
Typically the background check is into criminal history, civil legal history, financial debt history, and some offices send investigators to your home address and ask your neighbors/building super about you.
Financial debt history? Can you elaborate?
Only if you're in arrears on something, or declared bankruptcy, etc. Serious delinquencies. I think similar to what the C&F committee asks you if I remember correctly.
