ISP has determined that there needs to be further review of my application due to an arrest I had for retail theft(less than $10,first and last time) from 11 years ago when I was 15 years old at the time. I am unsure if it was a felony or misdemeanor? I went through a peer review court and did community service. I have nothing else on my record since then. I have been able to obtain jobs with extensive degrees of background checks since then without any issue, background checks with fingerprinting requirements..etc I was told that my application is neither approved nor denied, what should i expect? they said all that shows is a retail theft nothing more and that is why it needs further review I am unsure if it has been expunged/sealed, i will be visiting the circuit court on Monday.
