I was caught shop lifting 4 years ago in OHIO-Butler county. So far I have never done it and otherthan this shoplifitng incident I have no other bad record. Not even a traffic ticket. When this incident happend, I was taken to the police station, fingerprinted and they let me go. The items were valued less than $50. The charge was written as " petty theft". I went to court on the assigned date, pled guilty. There was only a fine and the judge said if I stayed away from that store and never do a such thing, the case will be dismissed.
When this incident happend I did not have a SS number ( I was a legal resident alien dependent). But I had a drivers license number and the police officer got it.
Recently I graduated fron college with flying colors and honours. Now I'm looking for jobs. One company had done a background check and nothing appreared on my record.
I am worried if it can appear when done by another company. Now I have SS number.
Are background checks done by name and SS number? Also what can I do to get this record off, if it exists. Do they just take them off after a while or what should I do.
Thanks in advance. PLease advice me.
