Long Story Short: I'm a graduate student looking to move to Australia for work from the USA. During my first year of graduate school, I fell into being "in the wrong place at the wrong time" and was detained for "Intoxicated in Public". Me, not knowing any better to get a lawyer to get it off my record, just paid the fine to get it over with and moved on with my life.
To put this in scope, this is my first encounter with Police and have never been in trouble. So this is the only thing on my record now. Specifically I would be interested in a work Visa, and obviously anyone looking into getting a visa is required to provide a "certificate of good conduct"
Reading Up on this, an Intoxicated in public arrest is a misdemeanor everywhere except Alaska.
Also would I have to provide a FBI Records check, or could I provide a local/state police report?
