You may OMIT:

  • An arrest, detention, processing, diversion, supervision, adjudication, or court disposition that occurred while you were subject to the process and jurisdiction of the juvenile court;
  • A conviction that has been judicially dismissed or ordered sealed, expunged, or statutorily eradicated pursuant to law (e.g. juvenile offense records sealed pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code section 389 and Penal Code sections 851.7 or 1203.45);
