    Default How Long Will Your Name Be In the National Retail Theft Database

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana

    I was entered into the National Retail Theft Database for a first-time offense of shoplifting around $48 worth of items. This was a year and a half ago. (I am not a minor.) I paid a civil demand and there was no arrest. Technically, I believe, there is no criminal record. Several problems ...

    1) Will I be on this database forever?
    2) Is this going to affect my ability to get another job?
    3) Is this going to affect my credit?
    4) Any other far-reaching consequences I should know about?

    Please reply - this is killing me.

    Did you get a ticket or notice to appear?

    I got a civil demand if that's what you mean by ticket. The fine was sent from the store, not from a court. No notice to appear.

    1) Will I be on this database forever?
    No they keep the record for up to 7 years depending on the severity.

    2) Is this going to affect my ability to get another job?
    Depends if the place you are hiring does a background check including a check with the national retail database. If they dont then you shouldnt have a problem.

    3) Is this going to affect my credit?
    If you dont pay the civil demand yes it can affect your credit and a judgement would likely be reported on your credit report.

    4) Any other far-reaching consequences I should know about?
    Not that I am aware of however heres a piece of information. The National Retail Theft Database is a voluntary list put together by different retailers. Any member who published the information can remove it. If you dont want it on there I suggest writing a letter to the store manager or general manager and asking so and why they should remove you. The reason I say this is because it worked for another person that I know. She simply made a mistake first time on her record and she pleaded to remove it and they did.HOWEVER if you have a do not contact as a stipulation do not try this.
