I was arrested 8 years ago for a physical altercation with my husband. He never wanted to press charges so the case was thrown out of court and supposedly my record expunged. (I was never convicted on anything, but I was arrested and fingerprinted).

8 years later I am required to do a FBI fingerprint check for employment. Will this arrest keep me from obtaining a Level 1 Fingerprint clearance? My employers have already withdrew their offer of employment until I am ableto obtain this clearance (I had to be honest about any and all arrests I've ever had).

I'm devastated. That was my first and only incident involving the police. I was never convicted yet my past has come back to haunt me. Please help!
