Hesperia, CA asked in Criminal Law for California

Q: On 1/11/16, at the Fort Irwin army base I was issued an appearance notice for Simple Possession of Controlled Substance

It was a green tea capsule that I was taking, trying to treat diabetes. No charges were filed by the US District Court.

Will this show up on a background check ? I am applying for work with the school district here in Apple Valley, Californis.

Thank you

A: i would get a letter from my doc for the future.

you have to be ready to explain if it comes up.

as a rule, you can only seal a conviction, not an arrest.
