“Can an Employer in Buffalo find out that I have a misdemeanor petit larceny on my record even though I didn’t serve time?”


Unfortunately, unlike a violation, a misdemeanor is a criminal conviction, therefore, regardless of whether you served time in jail, it will show up on a background check.

In New York State, however, you may be eligible to have your criminal conviction sealed. In order to do this, you must meet certain requirements. The court will likely focus on the time between the present moment and the conviction, as well as whether there were any criminal offenses in between.
