Then it will be dismissed and not on your record, but it could be visible to the court, or if things are looked up concerning you, they just can't be used against you. I think BCI is able to view things like this when checking to see if someone is worthy to have a carry permit? Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Basically, your record will show an arrest, a disposition of PIA until the terms are met, then it will show as dismissed. At that point you may have it expunged, if you're eligible. Until it's expunged anyone with access may see the arrest and current disposition of the charge.
My whole thing about this is how any judge can order the surrender of a firearm, without deeming the person ineligible to possess them. It doesn't seem right. The firearm isn't evidence, since it wasn't tagged as such when the citation was issued. Judges are not permitted to put arbitrary requirements into a PIA agreement, and this seems like just that.
