Arrested but not Charged?
Find answers to your legal question.





Arrested but not Charged?

In Canada, if you are arrested, admit to doing it (either trespassing or B&E), but are not charged, will this show up on your criminal record? Who will be able to see that you've been arrested? Will it have negative consequences in any way? How long will the information remain?

Don't know about Canada, but in the U.S., a person's arrest record is public record, regardless of disposition. Criminal records are also public, but require actual conviction. Arrest records are not the same as criminal records, although the information can be considered a propensity for criminal activity by a person. In the U.S., doing a standard criminal background check will provide both the arrest record and criminal record of the person being investigated. Negative consequences will be strictly the subjective determination of the person requesting the check. The information is lifelong.

If charges were not filed you should not have a record. If you do you can have the record expunged so only government and police can see it.
