Background check with domestic voilence felony charge

Nov 27, 2019 30 Comments

A friend's wife called police on him and they arrested him. There is a Domestic Voilence Felony charge on him.
The case hasn't been filed yet. It can take up to a year for conviction to finalize. Case might be dropped or expunged by court.
How does future employment background checks work in this case? How do they see Domestic Voilence charges?

      lol yeah, it's fucked up. Met online. Not Russia. We did marry for love (at least speaking for myself), but I didn't know this side of her. And our marriage was deteriorating for months for a variety of reasons.

      In CA if anyone calls the police, the other partner will be arrested for DV. It's called the Boston Policy. It's intended to reduce the cost of policing. Also many counties have a separate policy that they will never drop cases involving male accused. Even if the entire story is recanted. The DV statute requires no physical violence, words, withholding money, withholding sex all meet statutory requirements. Anyway, the commenter here doesn't know shit.

    I feel like he’s kinda fucked if that turns up. Maybe he should job hunt before it hits because they won’t likely do additional background checks for the duration of his employment. Could buy some time.

    Depends on the facts. In practice literally anything can wind up in a DV felony charge. If your spouse or even family member calls the police, SOMEONE will be charged with felony DV. (Boston policy, Google it, super fucked up, they hold you in lockup without bail until you plead if you're poor) A verbal argument all the way to forcible torture will wind up with the same arrest. The police will automatically charge as felony to collect DNA, if the act is on the low end then it will be filed as a misdemeanor instead. The rest depends on the county DA. Hire an attorney, if the complainant was full of shit then have him/her call the DA to put forward the facts. In many counties, the DA doesn't have discretion, and will not be permitted to drop the case if the accused is a man and the accuser is female. However, if the case is complete bullshit, then the DA will fold on the day of trial. The system is basically setup to get people to plead out, if they don't, and the accuser isn't on board the case falls apart at trial. (About half of these cases are bullshit, and the other half are serious, unfortunately all the discretion has been taken out of the system and even the bullshit ones wind up with misdemeanor or felony charges against poor folks, if the charge is bullshit and you have money you should be okay) Anyway, if it's a verbal argument, you're looking at misdemeanor, or taking anger management classes in lieu and the DA drops it. In terms of employment, misdemeanor should be okay, you will have to explain. Felony..., that's harder, but I know people working for FANGs that had felony convictions when hired.

    Even if you’re/he’s innocent... Domestic violence charges are tricky ... the cops don’t drop the charge just because the alleged victim wants to take it back ... it can only be cleared in court ....

    Domestic violence can be both ways. Let us not judge too quickly

      You should ask him. I am not defending anyone. I only said don't be the judge jury and executioner online for some comments.

      ask him to validate with his lawyer. In some states the charge cannot be a basis to not hire - as long as he discloses appropriately. A felony charge is different from a felony conviction. He should talk to the lawyer first, and then be up front with any recruiters so there is no surprise at the end.

      CA arrests at felony level to collect DNA and set high bail, then it's adjusted by the DA.

    Arrests are public.

    Assume it will show up. What the company does varies by company. Some don’t want to take chances with even alleged violent felons.

      No office job is taking a chance on any body with violent history. If they hire him and he gets in a fight with a employee. Company can be sued.
