Here is something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
Were you aware that there are finally some states that will only look at an offense if it’s less than seven years old? Here are those states:
- New Hampshire
- New York
Luckily there are states that will look at only guilty convictions. They are as follows:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, we still have many states that will still look at everything. Those states include:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
