    Default Shoplifting At Department Store

    California
    I am a minor

    caught shoplifting two items of clothing, but not caught for one previously lifted earlier that day. Admitted to the two articles of clothing. The price was over 100 less than 200. Detained for about 5 hours. PD was called. court case was made. I answered most of the questions thrown at me. I believe i was arrested because i had cuffs on. and then released to my parent. Unsure however.

    This is a first time offense, my grades are good.

    Questions are
    1) What will the civil fine be around aproximately?
    2) How will this affect my record?
    3) Sentence to expect?
    4) Anything i should know that would benefit me in any way.

    thanks for the info. Wouldn't it be possible to seal/expunge my juvenile record if I am convicted? I heard something where you can seal it up so its only accessible by police or some related force.

    Then on Job Applications/Interviews would i still have to answer yes to being arrested/convicted for a crime?

    I realize what i have done was a mistake, I'm just wondering if there is any further action I can take in order to salvage any damage done to my job oppurtunities/college

    Discuss this with your Attorney however if you can get diversion its likely a conviction will not appear on your record
