    Default Impact of Criminal Record and Diversion Program on College and Jobs

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: NJ

    I was caught shoplifting back in December. I was handcuffed and had a ride in the police car to the station. I received mail for a family intake conference which i went to. I was told the charges are dismiss and i will be put into a diversion program.

    I'm currently filling out a college application and it asked me "Other than traffic violations, have you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor, felony or other crime? Explain if yes"

    Do i check yes or no?

    If you successfully complete a diversion plan such that your case is dismissed without a conviction, then you weren't convicted.
