      A. Conviction

    • B.

      B. Active Diversion

    • C.

      C. Dismissed Diversion

    • D.

      D. Straight Dismissal

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Straight Dismissal

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A charge that occurred 10 years ago is still considered reportable in restricted states if the disposition date is within the past 7 years.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In restricted states, charges that occurred 10 years ago are still considered reportable if the disposition date is within the past 7 years. This means that even though the charge may have occurred a decade ago, it is still relevant and needs to be reported if the disposition date falls within the past 7 years.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    State restrictions should be applied if

    • A.

      A. The applicant currently lives in a restricted state

    • B.

      B. The applicant has ever lived in a restricted state

    • C.

      C. A record is located in a restricted state

    • D.

      D. The applicant is applying to work in a restricted state

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A. The applicant currently lives in a restricted state
    D. D. The applicant is applying to work in a restricted state
    Explanation
    State restrictions should be applied if the applicant currently lives in a restricted state or if the applicant is applying to work in a restricted state. This means that if the applicant is currently residing in a state where certain restrictions are in place, or if they are applying for a job in a state with restrictions, then the state restrictions should be applied. The other options, such as the applicant having ever lived in a restricted state or a record being located in a restricted state, do not necessarily indicate that state restrictions should be applied.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A record reports for a restricted state with a disposition dated 10 years ago, however the sentencing indicates 5 years prison time.

    • A.

      A. The record should be suppressed because the disposition date is outside of 7 years

    • B.

      B. Add the 5 years prison time which makes the record fall within the scope

    • C.

      C. Public records should verify the physical prison release date *

    • D.

      D. Check the client’s grading criteria to determine whether a 10-year old record is reportable

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Public records should verify the physical prison release date *
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. Public records should verify the physical prison release date. This means that instead of relying solely on the disposition date, the record should be suppressed only if the physical prison release date is outside of 7 years. In this case, even though the disposition date is 10 years ago, if the prison release date falls within the 7-year limit, the record should not be suppressed. This emphasizes the importance of verifying the actual release date rather than just the disposition date.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Dismissed diversions are not reportable in which of the following states:

    • A.

      A. CA

    • B.

      B. KY

    • C.

      C. Dismissed diversion are not reportable in any of the restricted states

    • D.

      D. Dismissed diversions are not reportable in any state

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Dismissed diversions are not reportable in any state
    Explanation
    Dismissed diversions are not reportable in any state. This means that regardless of which state the offense occurred in, if the diversion was dismissed, it does not need to be reported. This is in contrast to the other options, which suggest that dismissed diversions are not reportable in specific states (CA or KY) or only in restricted states. The correct answer implies that dismissed diversions are universally not reportable.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following are reportable per SOP?

    • A.

      A. Misdemeanors

    • B.

      B. Felonies

    • C.

      C. Summary Offenses

    • D.

      D. Ordinance Violations

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A. Misdemeanors
    B. B. Felonies
    Explanation
    According to the given options, misdemeanors and felonies are reportable per SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). This means that any incidents or crimes falling under these categories must be reported following the established procedures. However, there is no information provided about the reportability of summary offenses and ordinance violations, so it cannot be determined if they are reportable or not based on the given options.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    We should not report a pending record older than 7 years even if we verify there is still an active warrant

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important not to report a pending record older than 7 years, even if there is an active warrant. This is because after 7 years, the record may be considered outdated and no longer relevant. Reporting such records could lead to inaccurate information being included in background checks or other reports, potentially causing harm or unfair treatment to individuals. Therefore, it is best to adhere to the 7-year rule and not report these older pending records.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    As long as a record is reportable per SOP we can report it regardless of the client’s grading criteria

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the client's grading criteria is an important factor in determining whether a record should be reported. Even if a record is reportable per SOP (Standard Operating Procedure), it does not mean that it should be reported if it does not meet the client's grading criteria. The client's grading criteria may include specific requirements or thresholds that need to be met for a record to be reported. Therefore, it is necessary to consider both the SOP and the client's grading criteria when deciding whether to report a record.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is not a restricted state

    • A.

      A. AZ

    • B.

      B. CA

    • C.

      C. NV

    • D.

      D. NH

    Correct Answer
    A. A. AZ
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. AZ. This is because the question asks for a state that is not restricted, meaning it is not subject to any limitations or restrictions. The other options, CA (California), NV (Nevada), and NH (New Hampshire), are not mentioned as restricted states, so they are not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following is not considered a diversion?

    • A.

      A. Deferred adjudication

    • B.

      B. Suspended imposition of sentence

    • C.

      C. Suspended execution of sentence

    • D.

      D. Prayer for judgment

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Suspended execution of sentence
    Explanation
    A diversion is a legal program that allows individuals charged with a crime to avoid traditional criminal prosecution by completing certain requirements, such as counseling or community service. Deferred adjudication, suspended imposition of sentence, and prayer for judgment are all forms of diversion programs that offer alternatives to traditional sentencing. However, suspended execution of sentence refers to the postponement of the imposition of a sentence after a conviction, rather than offering an alternative to prosecution. Therefore, it is not considered a diversion.

    Which of the following is not considered a straight dismissal?

    • A.

      A. No bill

    • B.

      B. Nolle Prosequi

    • C.

      C. Non adjudication of guilt *

    • D.

      D. Stricken with leave

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Non adjudication of guilt *
    Explanation
    Non adjudication of guilt is not considered a straight dismissal because it implies that the guilt of the accused has not been determined or adjudicated. In other words, it means that the case has not been resolved and the accused has not been found guilty or innocent. This is different from a straight dismissal where the charges are dropped and the accused is considered innocent.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    A diversionary disposition that is still active is considered which type of record?

    • A.

      A. Conviction

    • B.

      B. Pending

    • C.

      C. Dismissal

    • D.

      D. Open Warrant

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Pending
    Explanation
    A diversionary disposition refers to a legal arrangement where a defendant agrees to fulfill certain conditions, such as attending counseling or completing community service, in exchange for having their charges dismissed or reduced. If a diversionary disposition is still active, it means that the defendant has not yet completed the agreed-upon conditions. Therefore, it is considered a pending record, as the final outcome of the case is still pending based on the completion of the diversion program.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some accounts are considered exceptions to the standard operating procedure (SOP) and are allowed to receive records that are dismissed or out of scope in restricted states.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Suppress the record according to the same guidelines as any other record
    Explanation
    If the applicant provides admitted criminal information and we locate the record but it is not reportable according to the client's guidelines, we should suppress the record according to the same guidelines as any other record. This means that even though the applicant admitted to the criminal activity, if it does not meet the criteria set by the client for reporting, we should not include it in the report. The guidelines should be applied consistently to all records, regardless of whether the applicant admitted to them or not.
