I was accused of stealing a $5 ring from Clairs. I was never arrested. They took me into the security office and I signed some papers. My parents were called and a few weeks later I received a letter to do the diversion program. I never stood before a judge or received a court date. Does this matter? No mug shot or anything like that. My parents paid 250 in the civil case again never appeared before a judge that letter came from a lawyers office. I completed the diversion program and my parents did paper work to expunge my record. I received a letter stating that me file had been expunged. Can someone please explain all of this to me? I do not want to study for 4 years to find out I can not be employed as a CSI.
