Dismissed Fake ID Charge and BG

I was given an offer with a large bank last May for 2020. However, I had a citation for a Fake ID a few months ago - it was dismissed through deferred prosecution but the expungement probably won't come through in time before they run the background check. Should I disclose this to HR or wait for them to run a BG and see if they ask about the "dismissed" charge?

Ha, I had the same thing happen last year before my SA. Don't disclose anything to HR. They won't do background checks till next year usually, they might not say anything about it, and/or the charge won't even be on your record at all (if you got deferred adjudication it won't show up at all)

Please please talk to your lawyer, rules vary in different jurisdictions.
