My question involves criminal records for the state of: New York
Hi I was arrested for theft of services, PL 165.15(3), for using a half fare metrocard of a relative. I've never been arrested before so I'm not too sure of the technical terms. I think the aide assigned to my cased pleaded ACD---states if I don't get into any trouble for six months, the record is sealed. I did get a court disposition afterwards and it stated that the charges were dismissed. Is there a way for me to get this record erased instead of sealed. I'm a college graduate and don't want it to further hinder my job employment. I've made a mistake because of ignorance and would like for it not be a permanent mark on my record.
