I've been charged with a petty theft misdemeanor when i was 18 or 19 ( i honestly can't remember , . . . ) and at the court it was infraction ( ? ) / reduced . . I know its probably the biggest mistake I've made in my life . . and i regret it a lot . . but I honestly don't know what to do . . and would grad school , med school , employers ( future jobs and part time jobs ) put it against me ?
