I’ve searched through the forums and have not found the exact answer to my question.
I’m applying for a position of public trust and need to fill out the OF-306 and the SF-85P.
I was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor just over 7 years ago. As a first time offender, I was placed into a program that included 12 months of supervised probation. Upon completion of the probation just over 6 years ago, the charge against me was dismissed. Later, all associated records were expunged.
Because of the timing, I can answer “no” to question 20 on the SF-85P because I have not been arrested, charged with, or convicted of any offenses within the past 7 years.
However, I am unsure of how to answer question 9 on the OF-306. I have in fact been on probation within the past 7 years. The form says to omit any “conviction” for which the record was expunged, but the form does not say to omit any “probation” for which the record was expunged.
Any help on how I should answer question 9 of the OF-306 would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
