    Default Shoplifting Arrest

    My question involves expungements or pardons for the state of: CT
    When I was 18 I was arrested for stealing a minor quantity of items (under $20.00) I was fingerprinted and told that I could do community service and pay a fine to the store, which I did and never had to go to court. I was also told that this would not show on my record as it was a first offense. I am now required to pass a fingerprint/criminal background check and am worried that this will show up. What can I do to be sure before having my results submitted to my potential employer? Please help!!

    What you describe sounds like a diversion program. From what you say there would be no court record of the incident, but I can't promise that it will be impossible for somebody to learn of the arrest. I suspect that you were told that it would not appear on your state criminal history; you can order it if you want to verify, as I expect, that the offense does not appear.
