Yes, I already filed my petition to seal my records, but my question is: " Can police officers ask questions or mention anything that directly implies that I have a criminal record (like " How long were you registering as a sex offender? " or Why did you have to register?") when I am pulled over during a traffic stop if I have passengers in the car with me? Especially since my case was juvenile and it is confidential.

Yes, the police may ask you anything they want. You, however, do not have to answer them.
