If a petty theft charge is amended to littering or an ordinance violation is it still possible to get the arrest sealed as if it was dismissed?
Unfortunately, not. Missouri Revised Statute 610.122 states when an arrest record may be expunged and is listed below.
"Arrest record expunged, requirements.
610.122. Notwithstanding other provisions of law to the contrary, any record of arrest recorded pursuant to section 43.503 may be expunged if the court determines that the arrest was based on false information and the following conditions exist:
(1) There is no probable cause, at the time of the action to expunge, to believe the individual committed the offense;
(2) No charges will be pursued as a result of the arrest;
(3) The subject of the arrest has no prior or subsequent misdemeanor or felony convictions;
(4) The subject of the arrest did not receive a suspended imposition of sentence for the offense for which the arrest was made or for any offense related to the arrest; and
(5) No civil action is pending relating to the arrest or the records sought to be expunged."

He paid $250 to Macy's and $350 bail to the police Was arrested for shoplifting 20 years ego for shoplifting under$10. Charges were dismissed because it was a mistake. He is an adult.
I would highly recommend getting an attorney. Stealing an amount that low is generally a class A Misdemeanor which carries with it a maximum punishment of one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. He's probably not looking at anything like that but if he hires an attorney, it's possible that he could get the charge amended to something less serious or could receive an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence) which results in no conviction so long as he does what he's required to do while on probation. Realize he can probably get free consultations with local defense lawyers to determine which one he wants to hire.See question
this was not part of the sentencing, or probation. My attorney doesn't seem to think it's a big deal, but another attorney wants 2000.00 dollars to look into it. I don't understand why I am having to do this in the first place when it wasn't part ...
Without more details, I can't say for certain why you need it but $2,000 is more than the IID should cost you. My guess is that this is your second DWI conviction. If that's the case, then it's required. You can call the Missouri Department of Revenue for more details.See question
First careless driving offense
There could be a warrant for your arrest and you could serve jail time. That will really depend on the Judge's decision. You should consult with a local attorney asap (ask for a free consultation) and get SATOP completed. Additionally, I would highly recommend you contact the Missouri Department of Revenue at 573-751-4475 and verify your driving status before operating a vehicle if you had an administrative suspension arising from this event.See question

The other attorneys are correct. It depends on the thoroughness of the background check. The fact that it is a stealing charge will not make it easier to be found compared to other charges, if that's what your asking in your comment to one of the other attorneys. However, it could definitely make a difference on how your employer views it if seen since it's a crime that could impact your employer if they feel you might steal from them.See question
