Ithaca Criminal defense attorney: Will FAKE ID conviction be on your permanent record in NY?

Will a FAKE ID conviction be on your
permanent record in New York
(and elsewhere)? 



In this video, Attorney Mike Cyr explains whether a New York FAKE ID conviction will be listed on your permanent record... 

In short, YES. If you are applying for a job or for college or graduate school, many companies and universities do background checks. More run of the mill background checks will only show criminal convictions like misdemeanors and felonies; however, more and more companies/colleges are using higher levels of scrutiny when evaluating applicants. Commercial background checks are getting better all the time due to the wealth of information contained on the internet. It's the information age and info on applicants is easy to get. We know from our own practice that FBI level background scrutiny will contain every infraction no matter how slight for a person's entire life!
