The juvenile MUST have a lawyer; either retained or court appointed. The outcome will depend on the juvenile's prior record, the facts of the case, and the recommendations of the probation officer.See question

I shoplifted in 2011 and I later got it vacated. My background check shows that I plead guilty and that I had it vacated. Can I get this expunged so no one can see? I am unsure if this is something that is able to get expunged or if I need more ti...
Whether a court record may be sealed and whether a conviction may be vacated depends on the type of crime involved (misdemeanor or felony) and the court where conviction is obtained (juvenile or adult). A decision whether to seal or vacate a criminal case can only be made by a judge in the court where the case was filed.
Sealing or destroying a court record or vacating a conviction does not necessarily affect the records maintained by law enforcement agencies, other government agencies, or private concerns. Requests about records maintained by other agencies must be made to those agencies.
You should take the time to consult with a criminal defense attorney in your state.See question
I went to court a while back and I pled Nolo contendere contest it showed up as guilty on my record I want to know why
A "No Contest" plea states that although you are not admitting guilt to the charge, you are not contesting the allegations. If the allegations are not contested, they stand and the accused is then found guilty. That is why it shows up as a guilty finding.See question
Can I pass DOJ even if it shows up as dismissed
The background checks vary in depth, eg., sometimes they report convictions and sometimes charges. Usually, a charge of a crime of violence, sexual deviancy, theft may negatively affect a job applicant; but, it depends on the job.See question
My father committed suicide in 1988 I have been trying to get the case file from that day so I can read his final thoughts. But I was first told the case was sealed by my mother and stepfather. But I was told today after trying for the last 3 year...
WOW tough situation to be in. Good luck in your grieving.
As for your question, I don't know of any criminal prosecution that takes place on the charge of a suicide because the accused needs to be alive. Thus, I think either the case that was expunged was one that was from your father's earlier experience with the criminal courts; OR, maybe related to an investigation into his cause of death. If it was a civil case, sometimes the parties persuade the court to "seal" sensitive documents. Sealing means they still exist. Expungements usually result in the destruction of police records.
I got stopped and the suspected ovi I have a North Carolina licenses and I was stopped in Ohio I couldn't go pee for the rest so they said that's considered a refuse so they are suspending me for 1 year for driving in Ohio
You can go to your home state (issuing state's) DMV - either online or in person - and request a copy of your DMV record. If your state has reciprocity with the suspending state, then it will definitely be listed. If there is not reciprocity, the best thing to do is to ask the DMV of the suspending state about your status. NOTE - sometimes it is note "your license" that is suspended but your "driving privileges" for those states that are not where you got your license.See question
There are many definitions of public records, but not many as to when it becomes official. For example, a police report, when does that document become official. Is there any case law that determines when a record becomes official?
It will depend on the use of the word "official." Thus, without knowing the context, I will answer generally - it means a document that is created in the normal course of the business.See question
Paid all the court fines and reinstatement fee here in Virginia. I have also completed VASAP and have waited my one year suspension. Will West Virginia DMV require me to do any additonal requirements in order for me to get a Virginia license?
The information provided here is not to be deemed to be, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation.
The best source of information is to get a compliance letter from the Virginia and West Virginia DMVs. This way you have clear information on what each state requires of you.
Good luck.See question

The information provided in this response is NOT to be deemed to be legal advice but is offered as general information.
Virginia has very strict rules regarding the eligibility of expungements - they are limited to cases that were dropped (not prosecuted) or dismissed (either by a finding of not guilty or a judge dismissing the case for other reasons). Unfortunately, the best you can do is keep doing the right things - not getting any new charges- so that enough time passes so that you can be eligible for a governor's pardon. As another attorney stated, let people/employers see you as the person you are today - clean, dedicated, mature, etc. - who is worthy of being given a chance. Good luck.See question
