    Is it legal to say "no" on a conviction question if I had an expungement and am applying in Arizona? Indiana shred all documents and says the crime "never occurred" when expunged.

    Thank you for your responses.

    We can't and won't tell you what is legal.

    A legal determination can only derive from a court of record.

    A conviction isn't washed away, as if it never happened by expungement.

    Government agencies and many other entities do see the arrest and conviction.

    I suggest you Google some public, criminal data sites.

    It might be worth your while to test your belief by signing up to three or four and entering your name, DOB, etc...

    See what you can see, that doesn't mean that businesses and government agencies can't see MORE than you do.

    I can only tell you that at least 75-80% of people that claim something was expunged, hear different after a background check has been conducted.

    The FBI is the official keeper of all arrest and conviction records.

    You can try using the FOIA to determine what they might still have pertaining to you.

    That is often at no cost, or very low cost.

    Google FBI and happy hunting.
