My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana.
I was just caught shoplifting at JC Penney.
I am absolutely terrified at this point, and after reading up on this, don't know exactly what to expect.
I stole two necklaces, completely not worth it, totaling to be about $50.
I have no criminal background whatsoever.
I am 23 and this is my first offense.
They did not arrest me, but the police did take my information and told me I would be summoned to court.
I admitted to stealing and didn't argue with the LP people at all.
I plan on going to court and pleading guilty.
However, I do not want this to be on my record.
Is there anyway I can have it off my record??
I know this was very stupid.
