A “withhold” is a legal concept which the Florida Supreme Court has recognized as being a means to withhold the adjudication of guilt (conviction) even though you have been found guilty by a Court. It is recognized as a matter of Florida law but this is not necessarily true as far as other jurisdictions are concerned (i.e. other sovereigns, be them States or not, do not have to recognize the “withhold” as a legal entity and may, as the federal court system chooses to do, instead consider a withhold to be the very same thing as a conviction).
In Florida you do not have to admit to being convicted if you only have a withhold, but if you are asked about the withhold and you do not fess up then you are likely to be branded a liar.
Further, insofar as background checks go, many withholds can be sealed but you may still need to disclose even a sealed case, depending upon where you are applying, what you are applying for and the nature of the application question asked.
