if you are arrested/charged but not convicted, there is obviously no conviction on your record. The arrest, however, is on the books. In general, the only way to get rid of that is to have it expunged.
So whom are you going to cite as a source on your homework? Anonymous Q. Poster from the Cyclone Fanatic Institute of Legal Studies?
This is not the best source for research (other than cyclone sports issues, of course).
And I don't know the answer to your question.
It's not really a formal assignment. It came up in a class discussion, and the instructor was curious as to how this worked. He just said find out what you can about that and shoot him an email. I realize this isn't a scholarly research tool (sorry Jeremy).

Interesting twist: I used to process security clearances for the Army, and lots of people get in trouble by not mentioning charges brought and dropped, or expungement. Trust me, the record of both of those is still out there, and if you want to do work in a sensitive area, it's best to mention them, as the security folks will find them out.
I've seen some pretty bad stuff that didn't keep a guy or gal from getting a clearance, but I've also seen a guy NOT get a clearance for "failing to mention" a relatively minor charge that was expunged.
