I am a minor (15) and shoplifted. The police were called down to the store however no charges were filed but the policeman took my information. Now I know that I donít have a criminal record but these are my questions.
I was never taken to a police station but was I still arrested?
Is a background check the same thung as a criminal recod check?
If I applied for a job at this age and a background check was done on me would anything turn up?
Is it true that when you turn into 18 and are an adult your juvenile files are closed up, so that when criminal record checks are done only the arrests or offences done as an adult will show up?
Id like to thank in advance for any responses.
