First, welcome to OCDO.
Second, it seems that you have answered your own question about
means.what no conviction Data...."
And last, the answer to your questionmay not be as simple as you might think. Yes, law enforcement has access to databases you, as a non-sworn law enforcement,plain old ciivillian citizen, cannot access. But that is not a problem for you regarding your CHP application.Does Inspector MacDonald have access to a dadt base concerning me which I can not access
Your case was "nolle pross-ed". Fromhttp://www.lectlaw.com/def2/n061.htm :Criminal defendants who are facing a "nolle pross" decision would be better served, IMNSHO, by seeking to have the charge dismissed with prejudice - meaning the court finds that the case should not be prosecuted (tried) and the charge cannot be brought up again at some later date. Historically, it is extremely difficult to get a lawyer to argue for such a ruling, and even rarer for a judge to actually dismiss with prejudice. Again, IMNSHO, this is because a "nolle pross" decision is the down-and-dirty quick way to get the case over with.NOLLE PROSEQUI - An entry made on the record, by which the prosecutor or plaintiff declares that he will proceed no further.
A nolle prosequi may be entered either in a criminal or a civil case. In criminal cases, a nolle prosequi may be entered at any time before the finding of the grand jury, by the attorney general, and generally after a true bill has been found; in Pennsylvania, in consequence of a statutory provision, no nolle prosequi can be entered after a bill has been found, without leave of the court, except in cases of assault and battery, fornication and bastardy, on agreement between the parties, or in prosecutions for keeping tippling houses.
A nolle prosequi may be entered as to one or several defendants. The effect of a nolle prosequi, when obtained, is to put the defendant without day, but it does not operate as an acquittal; for he may be afterwards reindicted, and even upon the same indictment, fresh process may be awarded.
Sorry for the length of the response, but "information is king" and you had a lot of ground to cover.
Resubmit your CHP application. If for some reason it is not approved request an ore tenus hearing before the Circuit Court judge. That's when you explain to the judge why you should get your CHP in spite of some Inspector saying you have a prior felony conviction that the State POlice records show you do not have. The Clerk of the Court can assist you with that process if you need to go that far.
